I Inherited Money And Property During The Marriage. Is That Marital Property That Has To Be Shared?

Probably not, in most cases, property like inherited cash or assets, or legal windfalls like personal injury awards are considered separate property and won’t be on the table for the court’s equitable distribution rule.

There may be cases where a spouse may make a claim on inherited items – if you inherited a business that has provided both of your livelihoods, for instance – that the court may decide is a marital asset in the divorce.
