Legal Question in Family Law in New York

The property was bought during marriage. Title is for both our names. My husband agrees to sign Quick Claim Deed and release his in interest in property to me. My question: in case of divorce, can he request half of equity in this property because it was bought during marriage?

Yes since title does not matter in a divorce case. If you have a post-nuptial agreement then perhaps it would be protected but that would depend upon the consideration given and other circumstances. Feel free to call me if you have any questions.
