Quit claim or marital waiver

2 Replies

I live in Missouri which is a marital state. I own 3 properties which I owned before I was married. Am currently going through a divorce. One title company is telling me to have my spouse sign quit claim deeds for each property Another is telling me that nothing needs to be done since I owned them before we were married as they are not considered marital property. 

I assume you have a divorce attorney, I’d ask them. While it’s certainly possible you might be able to sell them and keep the money I would be planning on splitting the money and consider getting to keep it a win. I assume your spouse knows you own these properties so you could ask them to sign, heck offer them a thousand bucks to sign.
