Equitable Distribution

If these properties were transferred into your name, they would be considered a gift to the marriage and would be divided along with all your other marital assets.

My husband owned both properties before we married '91 or so
We married in late '97
–but in '99 He gave me ownership as well. Of both properties. He also put all the cars in my name alone-

Do I own these properties or not?-The house we lived was added to and in contruction for the entire marriage-yet the appraisal came in and because it was not done in the proper way it was evaluated as a tear-down-for $550-he had added 4000 square feet so you can imagine what that did to its appreciation value-so what are might rights?-Aren’t these properties a gift to the Marriage
