My daughter and her husband are set to buy a new home. My wife and I have promised to donate a large amount of money to my daughter to use for this purchase.
My daughter and her husband may get divorced soon. If they get divorced, will my daughter automatically get 50% of the home no matter what? She is raising 2 children under 4 years of age at home. She does not work outside the home. Her husband is sole earner.
Regardless of how much of the house she gets in a divorce, where does our substantial donation of cash go since it has already been used to purchase the house? Can it “stay” with her and not go to the husband? Or should I become an owner of the house myself?
