A:David’s Answer: If the apartment was purchased during the marriage, then it’s presumptively marital property. It’s then your wife’s burden to prove it’s her own separate property. Thus, it may turn on whether the Judge believes the money gifted was intended to only be for your wife, rather than a benefit to the marriage.
