When Separate Property Appreciates in Value During Marriage
It is not uncommon for houses, businesses, bank accounts and other assets to increase in value during the course of a marriage. This can make property division even more complex. For example, if one spouse enters into the marriage with a bank account that is worth $200,000, that account is the spouse's separate property. If that spouse then co-mingles that account with other marital assets, perhaps adding the other spouse's name to the account and allowing that spouse to contribute, it becomes a marital asset.
In these situations, we not only want to separate the original $200,000 of separate property from the marital property, we want to understand how much that money is worth in today's dollars. This is necessary to ensure fair division of property.
