“I inherited property from my parents. Will I have to split it with my spouse when I get divorced?

“I inherited property from my parents.  Will I have to split it with my spouse when I get divorced?”  No.  Inheritance is considered separate property.  Property that is left to someone is considered the sole property of that person.  In other words, anything that is left to you and you alone through inheritance is separate property.  This  means it would not be subject to property division in a divorce.  For example, if you inherited your mother’s jewelry through her will, then your spouse would not be able to obtain any of the jewelry in a subsequent divorce action.
