My husband, our two kids and I live in Florida. My father who lives in Europe and is not a US citizen or resident wanted to buy a house for us to live in and have it under his name to protect me from possessions issues in a possible divorce (my husband and I had our troubles before, it could happen again). It became complicated when we found out that a non-resident would encounter various tax issues if he tries to sell, gift the property or dies. So, if he gives me the money and I buy the house under my name only (I believe you can do it in Florida), will my husband have rights to the house in case we do divorce? He is willing to give up his right now by signing a statement - or what are the procedures and is it even possible?
