Before we were married, my wife purchased a home (in her own name). We married, and are now splitting. What we want to do is transfer the home to just my name (while she finds a different place). Is that easy to do? I know I'll have to get a mortgage, but is it like purchasing a home? Is there an easier way that I'm not thinking of?

She would have a presumed marital interest until you divorce. As a result, I am not sure you can get a mortgage without having her sign off on it while a divorce is pending or before it is filed.

The property title can be transfered simply by Quitclaim Deed. After a divorce, she would again have to deed the property to you to clear title.
