Will my husband get half of this asset when we divorce?

Additional Information:

When my husband and I got married, instead of a having a big expensive wedding, my parents gifted me about $30K.  We ended up putting the money toward the down payment on our home in Shrewsbury that we bought together.  I am now filing for a divorce, will my husband get half of this asset?

 ATTORNEY ANSWER:

The key to your question is that they gifted the property and as such have made no condition of repayment. Judges in divorce actions attempt to divide up the marital assets in an equitable manner looking at a number of factors including the length of the marriage, the source of the asset and the contributions of the parties.

The judges are required to review many factors and as such you should certainly hire an attorney that works in the area of matrimonial law.
