Well, Minnesota, we are an equitable property state and we divide property into two areas. One is non-marital property and marital property. The statute starts with the presumption that all property acquired during the marriage is marital in nature. If a party wants to say that the property is non-marital in nature they have the responsibility for demonstrating that it’s non-martial. There are specific areas that the statute identifies that make property non-marital. One is, something that was received as a gift to that individual alone, property that was owned by an individual on the date of marriage, or property that was received as an inheritance from someone other than their spouse.

Minneapolis, Minnesota family law attorney Marc Johannsen elaborates on the differences between marital verses non-marital property.
