Hello and welcome,
Pursuant to the VA code, the property would likely be considered transmuted into marital property based on the following section of the code:
d. When marital property and separate property are commingled by contributing one category of property to another, resulting in the loss of identity of the contributed property, the classification of the contributed property shall be transmuted to the category of property receiving the contribution. However, to the extent the contributed property is retraceable by a preponderance of the evidence and was not a gift, such contributed property shall retain its original classification.
Here is a link to the code:

Once it is commingled and then used for joint purposes, a court would typically find that the property has been transmutted into marital property and is no longer separate property.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
