Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today,Here this would be separate property since it was gifted from grandmother and dads as a name was not added to title.This should not be a problem mother received it as a separate property gift.This would be decided by Arizona law if t he property was located there.Since it was resolved other than father and he has no title claims because it was gifted separate property you should be fine..If father's name was added here it would be a different story.
Property one spouse owned alone before the marriage, or acquired by gift or inheritance during the marriage, is that spouse’s separate property, as long as that spouse can prove the claim with financial records or other documents. The deed would serve as that proof here.
