– from Shawn Z. in Hartford, WI
When my parents passed away, they left to me their boat. My wife and I have used it together a few times, however we always said it was my boat and not the family’s. As a result, I have been the only person financially contributing to the boat. We decided it is in our best interest to file a divorce. However, I feel the boat should not be considered in our marital estates as it was given to me and I was the only one who cared for the boat. Can I make an argument of why the boat is solely mine?
