Q: My inheritance was used as a down payment on a home. I have never spent a night there. Do I get it back?

Anna Aleksander's answer
If you used non-marital funds to purchase property the non-marital funds invested will continue to be your non marital property. There are exceptions to this and much depends on the specific funds, whether or not there will be offsets etc... The very basic simple example is as follows: you purchased a home in KY for 100k and financed 70k and 30k was your down payment from inheritance. 30k will remain your non-marital property. This should not be treated as legal advice.

Timothy Denison's answer
Do you have somewhere safe you can keep the dog that is not at your house? If so, you should move him there for safekeeping and so no one can take him from you until the ownership is established. I sincerely doubt that they will get a warrant, but if they do, the dog won’t be there. Don’t give them any information snd don’t talk to them about anything. Call Martha at my office and schedule an appointment on Monday.

Don’t let him do HIP at your house. They’ll take him back to jail where your mother and his kids are safe from him. You can’t get him any mental help unless and until he wants it.
