Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Yes you should ask for offset here in the property settlement because she gifted marital funds and you can seek credit for your half 4250k.It is worth asking for since it did not benefit you but rather her relative.Raise it in property settlement see if you can get credit/offset for this gift to a family member.It is certainly worth trying here.
I appreciate the chance to help you and wish you the best here in the divorce.
If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
