– from Paula W. in Elm Grove, WI
During my marriage, I received an inheritance when my father passed away. I deposited this money in my personal account rather than a joint one. Using that money, I purchased property with two homes on the lot. My husband and I moved into one home, and rent out the other. My husband and I both work for a living. We both deposit a set amount into a joint account and place the rest of our individual earnings into separate personal accounts. We are now looking to get divorced for personal reasons. He feels that half the property belongs to him. Is property I purchased with inherited money divisible marital property?
