I own a home that I purchased prior to my marriage. My husband is previously married and currently pays alimony and child support to his former wife. As part of our pre/post-nup, we agreed that all assets and liabilities that existed prior to the marriage remain our own. We keep all finances separate other than utility bills that we split 50/50. We also file taxes separately.
My husband would like to start making 50% payment of my mortgage to reflect housing costs. My fear is that if he pays towards my mortgage, it can open up all my finances to his ex during alimony review, child support/college education review, etc. I do not want my money going to his ex, whom I have an order of protection against. I don't need his money to make the mortgage. Is there risk to me if I accept it?
