As the best community property lawyers in Mesa AZ we often get asked, “what if my mom or my dad or another relative, gifts me some kind of property during the marriage? Does the other spouse get to share in that asset when we get divorced?” Generally speaking, the answer is no. One of the exceptions to the community property rule in Arizona, is that an asset or piece of property that is gifted to you is your sole and separate property. You need to be careful not to co-mingle that piece of property with marital property, because that can actually transform that sole and separate asset into a community asset that would be then divided. But if you keep it separate and if it was gifted to you from someone else at the time of the divorce, the court will consider that your sole and separate property and you’ll get the entirety of that asset.
