Considering divorce in future and I'm the breadwinner but my husband will try to get as much of my money as possible. How can I start protecting my own personal savings money from his clutches - are there certain types of bank accounts he has no right to get any portion of?

Those that aren't joint.....but since you're the breadwinner, you might want to start accepting that you may have to pay spousal support.

While I'm not in favor of it and have always declined to receive it, if he was the breadwinner and you the stay at home, you'd want spousal support also.

Thank you! He does have a job, but just makes less than me. Do you know also about selling a house - my parents gave us the down payment which was a considerable amount and I paid a larger percentage of the mortgage payments. Would he get half regardless or is that what we need to negotiate? Thanks do much for any help with this!

House is marital property -- so whatever split that's agreed on, yes, he'd get money out of it if the house has to be sold. One of you can buy the other out, if that's possible.

I would think that the down payment would be a wash since it was used on a joint asset.
