  • My Legal Briefcase

    Last summer, my brother and I built an addition to my house. The addition cost $10,000 and added $20,000 to the value of the house. Now my wife and I are splitting up. Can I get the $20,000 back?

    No. You have to share the full value of your family home with your spouse. It doesn't matter if you put more money or work into your home. There are some very limited exceptions to this rule.
