Preserving an Inheritance During a Divorce

During the course of your marriage, you may inherit certain assets or property from loved ones, either after they pass away or while they are still alive. Although in most states these inherited items are considered the separate property of the individual who received them, Connecticut is one of a handful of states that generally considers them shared assets. This means that inheritances are likely to be factored into the division of marital property if you are seeking a divorce from your spouse.
