Re: Who gets house profit?
How long were your married and when did you buy the house? It matters. Is the other house separate property or is a portion of its value subject to equitable distribution, like the appreciation during marriage. Were marital funds used to service the home equity loan?
If his other house was indeed separate property, then a portion of the separate property was commingled with marital property. Whether it is still separate property or marital property is a complicated issue we can't answer.
