Will Your Inheritance Be Part of the Property Division?

Generally, absent commingling, inherited and gifted property is considered the property of the recipient. Even in marriages of considerable length, one spouse maybe able to protect inherited property from equal distribution during a divorce property settlement.

If you are considering divorce in which inherited or gifted property is a property issue, talk to an attorney at our law firm. Our attorneys have been representing people of high net worth and estate holders in southwestern Connecticut for more than 50 combined years. We have a firm knowledge of case law regarding inherited and premarital property rights.

Not all property is divided equally. Even in a marriage of many years, if one spouse inherits assets from a family estate, it may be possible to retain it as separate property
