Ok. Thanks.

Possession is 9/10 of the law, so the longer the property stays in your name, the longer all parties and the judge will associate the property as being yours. Certainly, how long you hold the property under protest is not outcome determinative, but it does have a psychological any delay/length of time before adjudication likely helps you more than it helps the other party.
