Columbus Commingled Assets Attorneys
Separate Property & Marital Assets
Premarital, inherited, or gifted assets often become mixed or commingled with marital assets. During a marriage, separate funds are often used for the purchase of partially marital assets.
For instance, one spouse may take the proceeds from the sale of his or her premarital home and use them for the down payment on the new “marital” home. Afterward, one or both spouses may contribute to the monthly mortgage payments on the new home. During a divorce, a question may arise as to whether the spouse who put his or her premarital money into the new home can recover that money from the sale of the property (or must count that value in the calculation of marital assets) before splitting the remaining equity in the new home with his or her spouse.
