California and never comingled. I used these funds to help with family expenses. In our tax return.
Family Lawyer: RayAnswers, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

It would all be separate here under California law.You would have to trace it where the asset was premarital and the income was too.

Separate property is anything you have that you owned before you were married or before you registered your domestic partnership. Inheritances and gifts to 1 spouse or domestic partner, even during the marriage or domestic partnership, are also separate property. Rents, profits, or other money you earn from your separate property is also separate property. And property you buy with separate property is also separate property.

http://www.courts.ca.gov/1039.htm

You can certainly argue for the property and the income here as separate property during property settlement.You may well prevail on these items and the income from them.

Thanks again I appreciate the chance to help .
