I live in Aurora, and plan on filing for divorce from my wife. I already owned our home when we got married. Since then, though, we have a new addition on the house and have put in a pool. What does she have a claim to?
If you didn't add your wife's name to the title, she would have a claim to part of the increase in value from the date of marriage to the date of divorce.
If you added your wife's name to the title, it will be deemed a "gift" to the marital estate, and she will be entitled to share in the full amount of equity in the house at the time of the divorce.
