When relationships end, one of the most difficult tasks is dividing property. It’s easy to say, “What’s yours is yours, what’s mine is mine, and what’s ours is ours.”
Putting that in to practice may be a little more difficult, though.
In its simplest terms, non-marital property is what each person owned prior to the marriage, and marital property is acquired and owned during the marriage, but there are exceptions.
As attorney Grant Varner with the Greenville, South Carolina firm of Varner and Segura explains, “There are some strange places where this can sort of get a little fuzzy, a little gooey, and a little gray. It’s not just black and white on this issue.”
While he highlights some examples of circumstances of how non-marital property can become marital property, he will get in to greater detail in a future video.
