Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am a solicitor and will try and assist you today.
Did your dad put down in writing that the property was a gift to you?
Is there a Deed of Gift or something similar, you may translate it into English.
As a general rule, gifts by third parties belong to the person to whom the gift was made to, in this case you, and as you say, before marriage.
You have a strong ground for disputing your ex's claim to this property which was gifted to you and should not be considered in the matrimonial assets pot.
May I help further?
Yes, it is up to you to refute/defend your ex's claim and your dad may write a letter making it clear that the property was gifted to you only before your marriage.
All the best
