How do I buy a new home during a divorce without losing half of the property? 1 Answers as of July 22, 2011

I am separating from my husband after 25 years of marriage due to his alcoholism. I have managed to save some money and have a friend who is willing to loan me money, which along with my savings will enable me to purchase a foreclosed home a pay cash for it. If my husband and I do divorce later on, is he entitled to half of my new home? Is there anything I can do to keep him from getting half of it, such as putting my daughters name on the home also, or something like that? Thank you
