Property that you bring into a marriage will be treated as separate property at the time of divorce, and won’t be subject to equitable distribution of marital assets.
The house you purchased years ago that became your marital residence after you and your spouse wed is a separate asset.
You can expect to keep it in the settlement, but a good divorce attorney can help you protect it going forward.
For instance, the wrong representation can leave you saddled with larger support payments than you can realistically handle, and force you to eventually sell the home anyway to meet your obligations.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
