Good afternoon. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be the professional assisting you today. Can you tell me how the property was acquired - inheritance, purchase with earnings, a gift?
It was the purchase of an automobile using non-marital funds.
Thanks for the information.
If the purchase was with separate property then it remains separate property so long as you have not co-mingled it - such as putting your spouse's name on the title.
Thank you. Are there any other details I should be aware of related to this?
No, so long as the non-marital funds were never placed in a joint account, the should remain separate property and neither they nor anything purchased exclusively with those funds should be considered marital property.
Thank you very much for your prompt response.
