Zirngibl v. Zirngibl


165 Wis.2d 130, 477 N.W.2d 637 (WI Ct. App., 1991)


Where wife put inheritance into joint account for purpose of buying joint real estate, but husband put real estate into his own name, wife rebutted the presumption of donative intent. The deposit was a conditional gift and condition – that it be used to buy joint real estate – was not fulfilled. Thus, separate character of funds was retained.
