Not in Georgia, it would be considered a non marital asset since it was purchased prior to the marriage and would not be suject to division in a divorce. Check your states laws.

This response is intended to be a general statement of law that should not be relied upon as legal advice and does not create an attorney/client relationship.


In Oregon, the court would divide only the increase in value (if any) that occurred during the time you and your husband have been married.
