Separate property is property that during a divorce does not need to be divided. At times, although property was acquired during marriage it can still be considered separate property. In addition, if something was a gift or inherited it is also separate property. Therefore, these types of property obtained would not need to be divided during the divorce process.
In order to ensure you are granted the property that is rightfully yours you should speak with a legal professional. Speaking with a legal professional will help you make an informed decision as to what route to take during a divorce proceeding. When speaking to various legal professionals this is where you can find out what property you are or are not entitled to. This may lessen the tension and chance for further disputes to occur during the divorce.
