– from Robin L. in Whitefish Bay, WI
During my marriage, my mother gifted me some real estate. It was not an inheritance. She just wanted me to have a portion of her real estate so I could begin to make my own money. I then sold the real estate and invested in new property. I made no income other than money to pay property taxes. Now that I am beginning the first stages of divorce, my husband believes that he should own half of the property or half of their worth. Is gifted real estate considered marital property?
