Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: my mother is about to get her divorce and she has a house and property she received from her parents before she was married and now that estate is solely in my mother's name. Will this have to be included in her settlement of her divorce?
JA: Was the property purchased during the marriage?
Customer: this is in the state on NC and no it was not purchased at all but handed down from my mother's parents to my mother.
JA: Were any marital funds used for the mortgage or property improvements?
Customer: No - none at all - he did not even have anything but a part-time job during the time they were together.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: yes, the house and property was signed over to my mother at the time my grandmother had to go into a nursing home for Alzheimers but this was also done before their marriage.

Yes. You cannot exclude any property frpm a divorce settlement. It has to be accounted for.

Customer
will this property be considered an inheritance?
Customer
Does all States in the US also count inherited property?

James Daloisio, Expert

An inheritance is received as a gift resulting from a death. All states recognize it.

Customer
if this property was put in my mother's name prior to her mother's death but before she was put into a nursing home due to Alzheimers, and my mother was the only child--it would no longer be considered an inheritance?
Customer
Even though it would still be considered a gift but did not result in death but also happened prior to their marriage.
Customer
Are you there?

Yes. Its still a gift.
