My question involves marriage law for the State of: California
If I got married March of last year, and prior to the marriage, I had $50,000 in my bank account, and been working ever since, would the $50,000 still be considered only mine? Would any income and/or interest deposited to the bank account since March be considered split with my spouse during a divorce? My bank account currently does not have her name.
Also, if we plan on purchasing a home (with my money as down payment); and the loan/deed only has my name on it, so if I get a divorce (i.e. a year later), would the house be considered mine? I am willing to pay her back for any amounts comingled into house improvements or if she contributed to paying for the mortage (i.e. half of monthly payment), if we had to file a divorce.
