ED and Inheritance


#1

I received an inheritance from my grandparent’s estate last year that consisted of both physical property and cash. All physical property was made liquid and divided among all heirs. With that money received I have made several purchases for my home; television, furniture, etc. for the home as well as a lot of items solely for me. None of the aforementioned items were given as a gift rather they were just purchased and placed in the home. Will my wife have a right to any of this property?

No. Inheritance is your separate property, even if you use it to purchase things for the house. The source of the funds for that property is your own separate property, so she has no claim on it.
