– from Adam N. in Muskego, WI
Before my mother passed away, she gave me the title to her house, which was valued at $10,000. My wife and I lived there until we decided to separate for divorce. During our last appraisal, the house was valued at $35,000. My wife helped work on the house while we lived there. I feel since the house was a gift to me, it should not be considered when the court makes a property division. Are gifts counted when dividing the property?
