How Divorce Affects Inheritance

Approximately 25 percent of Americans receive an inheritance, with all inheritances worth a median sum of nearly $70,000, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. If you received an inheritance before or during your marriage, it is possible that the grantor of your inheritance only intended it for your use.

However, your use and management of inheritance after you are married could have a significant impact on asset and property division in divorce. Colorado is an equitable distribution state, meaning your assets will be divided in a way that ensures a fair outcome for both you and your spouse after divorce. Even if you kept your inheritance separate from your marital assets, your sum could still affect the remainder of your assets.
