Can My Spouse Go After A House I’ve Owned Since Before We Were Married?

You’re probably okay on property you owned prior to the marriage.

New York courts focus on what’s known as equitable distribution of marital assets – but separate assets, like property you owned before the marriage – is typically excluded from the divorce proceedings.

In some cases though, a spouse may have a legitimate claim to some economic consideration as a result of improvements that they contributed to.
