Understanding Your Property Division Rights

When identifying marital assets in a property division case, it is important to understand all of the property that can be included. This property can include:

  • Estates
  • Trusts
  • Inheritances
  • Bequests
  • Property rights
  • Real estate
  • Family gifts

Understanding Inheritance and Gifts

In many cases, the principal amount of the inheritance or gift could be treated as individual or joint property. Likewise, appreciation in value beyond principal may be considered divisible between the spouses. With trusts, there may be times when the entire value, including principal, can be considered marital property, but the nature and specific terms of the trust must be carefully examined.
