Premartial property

It is possible for you to get some of that money back if you pursued this matter in court. You would need to argue that you used marital funds to contribute to his separate debt. Otherwise, you may want to have a separation agreement drawn up where he agrees to pay you back for your contribution to his separate property.

Take care!

My husband signed a contract to purchase our house prior to our marriage. It is deeded to him and his mother. I have made several of the morgage payment and paid for renovations. We were only married for 7 months and now separated. But I lived in the residence and contributed to the morgage for 2 years. Can I get any money back on the house at the divorce?
