Is it Separate, Commingled, or Marital Property?
If the property was brought into the marriage by one spouse (or inherited
by that spouse during the marriage) and was kept separate throughout the
marriage, it will most likely remain a protected asset for that spouse.
On the other hand, if inherited funds were commingled with the other spouse's
financial resources during the marriage, some or all of the inheritance
may have lost its status as separate property. That portion of the inheritance
that is now community property will be considered part of the marital
estate to be divided.
Can You Keep Inherited Real Estate Property Intact?
It may be difficult to divide an estate when inherited real estate has
become community property. It may require selling the property. On the
other hand, you may have other assets that you can cede to your spouse
in exchange for keeping the inherited property whole.
The following kinds of assets can be used for negotiating:
- Retirement assets
