Marital and Nonmarital Assets and Liabilities

by | Aug 21, 2020 | Firm News, Florida Family Law

Can I legally get my spouse off the deed to my house if I was the sole purchaser? My husband and I got married four years ago. Two years ago, we moved to Florida and bought a house with cash. The title company suggested we both sign the title deed. However, we bought it with my money! God forbid there is a divorce. If there was, he would probably receive over $200,000.00, as we would split the proceeds 50/50 since his name is on the title. He objects to removing his name. In our prenup and in my will, he will receive the house free and clear if I pre-decease him. 

This sounds like a marital and nonmarital assets and liabilities case. Under Florida law, the difference between marital and nonmarital property is whether the property was acquired during the marriage. Depending on the specific facts of your case, the home you purchased could possibly be a nonmarital asset predating marriage. You should contact the law offices of Mark E.
