Puchase of home

My husband purchased a new home 2 weeks after separating and did use marital funds but I never signed any agreement so i guess it can be done.

There are certain exceptions where a Free Trader Agreement is not needed, however I do not practice property law and do not know off the top of my head what they are. I will research the issue and report back when I have additional information. Please remind me if you do not see a response within a week.

Ex purchased a home 5 months after separation. I did not sign a free trader agreement or anything. Previously, Ms. Fritz stated that I had no interest. Everything else that I have read on here says that ex could not have purchased this property without a free trader agreement. Marital funds were not used, but the house was purchased prior to the divorce. Why does the free trader apply to everyone else except me?
