  • "Generally, inheritances are not subject to equitable distribution because, by law, inheritances are not considered marital property. Instead, inheritances are treated as separate property belonging to the person who received the inheritance, and therefore may not be divided between the parties in a divorce. However, if it's shared between spouses, an inheritance can be treated differently based on rules that vary greatly among the states. For instance, if the inheritance is deposited into a joint bank account and used for joint marital expenses (called "comingling of the inheritance"), the inheritance can lose its separate property status. Likewise, if the inheritance is used to make improvements to the primary residence, it may also lose its separate status. Therefore, comingling is key -- if separate property is used in a way that benefits joint marital assets, the inheritance may no longer be considered separate property, and may be subject to division upon divorce." https://family.findlaw.com/divorce/inheritance-and-divorce.html#:~:text=Generally%2C%20inheritances%20are%20not%20subject,the%20parties%20in%20a%20divorce.
