Thank you for this service.
- Spouse had home then married me. Quit Claim Deed 2 months into marriage to both of us. Mortgage was 90,000. We paid off mortgage over next 2 years and used $60k of his money that came from sell of stock. The stock was his in separate acct but 9 months into marriage he put it in joint brokerage acct. I understand that the house is considered gift to marriage. Is the stock he put in NOT marital but separate? I hear there was a precedent that changed the McLain case due to length of marriage being only 6 month and judge gave the separate money back. We were married 5 years. Plus, we used other money to pay on house over the 2 years. Is this a 50/50 or could all the separate stock money go back? What is the case name that overruled McLain regarding separate money into marital home? We also took out a loan on the house of $30k to pay taxes for the year we paid off the house.
** Car was titled to spouse by other spouse who owned before date of marriage. From what I have read, this is marital property since it was a gift. Is this correct?
Last, how much does it range it cost to have a QDRO done? I hear it is 3k. Is this true?
Than k you in advance!
