Is An Inherited Summer Home Considered Separate Property?

I inherited a summer home from my parents. Is this home still considered separate property now that we’re getting a divorce?

John J. Gilligan, a family lawyer in Long Beach, answers:

So long as the inherited property remains in your name alone and has not been transmuted to community property, it is still your separate property upon divorce.
