My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship. Since this is an inheritance, it would not be considered marital property unless it is somehow co-mingled with marital property. One way could be if this became the marital home. If it is not then as inheritance, your sister would not have to divide this property upon divorce as it is separate property. Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer if satisfied. There should be smiley faces or number from 1-5 to choose from. This extra step will cost you nothing extra and will ensure that I will be compensated by the site.
