I am sorry you rated me poorly.What follow up do you have.This is clearly non marital property if you inherited it from your brother regardless of whether you inherited it during the marriage if you did not co mingle it.It should be awarded to you as separate property by the judge.
Property brought into the marriage by one of the parties or inherited by one of the parties may qualify as non-marital separate property and may not be subject to equitable distribution unless it has been commingled with marital property or used for familial purposes.This should be your separate property because you inherited it as beneficiary of it.
You have the right to cash it in whenever you choose as it is your property and should be awarded to you by the court.Please let me know what follow up you have here.I would be happy to follow up. I want to address your concerns.Thanks for letting me help.
