A: Who signs first is not relevant. It may still be considered marital property and the court will divide it fairly.

A: It won’t matter which name is listed first. When it comes to issues like this it will likely to come down to marital asset, which are things gained during the course of the marriage. Work with an attorney who can help you with the proper course of action for the divorce.
