Can my wife claim this property as part of the equitable distribution settlement, or this is left off the table.

Q: I'm looking to start divorce proceedings, but the question I have is that I have a vacation home overseas that I built before we got married.

A: David's Answer: Unless you put your wife's name on the title, then it's generally your separate property. That said, if you used marital funds to pay down the mortgage and/or make capital improvements to same, then she may be able to recoup a portion thereof. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Divorce attorney for a full assessment.
