A: Your question is more complex than you think. Your husband (or the two of you) should discuss what you want to happen with the house in the future. It sounds like you are describing an inheritance. At this point in time (before it is in his name) it sounds like a non-marital asset, meaning that initially it will belong only to your husband. Look for a local family lawyer to consult with for better advice.

Good luck.
