Can you buy a property before the final divorce decree has been granted?
Yes you can purchase property prior to your divorce, however, and this is where it gets tricky, your spouse if they have not been advised of this property can make a claim to it, unless you have a legal separation agreement and it has language that from the inception of the agreement you and the spouse shall not stake claim to any property from a specified date etc.
Advice, wait for the divorce to be final before you make any large purchases as this can complicate your case.
