How is my inheritance treated in a divorce in Texas?

Hi, I'm Tycha Kimbrough. If you obtained an inheritance and you're going through a divorce, you may be wondering how your inheritance will be treated under Texas law, and inheritance is considered to be separate property. Although Texas is a community property state, since your inheritance will be separate property, that means that your spouse is not entitled to the assets or funds that you obtained, but it is so important to ensure that you do not co-mingle your inheritance with community and marital property funds.
