I'm leaving the marriage, and have found a place I'd like to move to with my child. If I purchase a home while I'm still married -- however will now be separated -- is this property considered community or separate property. I want to make sure that once we actually go to court for the divorce, this new home is not an issue.
Is a separation agreement necessary in this instance?I will be using my own account (only my name on the account) and my credit score. If a separation agreement is drawn up to say that the house will not be included as community property, is that legally binding? We are not going to court ... everything will be divided and written up prior, and then filed with the court to finalize (non contested divorce). and ... please don't assume I'm male or female ... I want opinions based on fact, not on how a judge views gender in most cases.
