    I suggest that you consult a civil litigation attorney in the state where the new employer is located. You may be able to pursue a claim against the new employer for the relocation costs you had under a legal doctrine called detrimental reliance. You should also consider putting in a claim for unemployment compensation, too.

    abor Department - Wage Claims When wages owed to an employee are no more than $5,000.00 and the accrual of those unpaid wages does not exceed one year, the employee may file a wage claim with the Department (A.R.S. § 23-350 et seq.). Upon receipt of a claim, the Department will notify the employer of the claim and investigate the case. After investigation of the claim, the Department will provide a written Determination which can only be appealed to Superior Court. An employer who does not comply with a Determination within ten days after the Determination becomes final is liable for triple the amount of the unpaid wages found to be owed. Employees also have the option of filing in the civil courts; however, they cannot file with both the State Labor Department and the civil courts. abor Department - Wage Claims When wages owed to an employee are no more than $5,000.00 and the accrual of those unpaid wages does not exceed one year, the employee may file a wage claim with the Department (A.R.S. § 23-350 et seq.).

    Hi @hurting1213 Welcome to the community and thanks for posting! In a community property state, the inheritance should remain your separate property. However, be careful not to "comingle" these funds with any community property funds. Once you receive your inheritance, open a separate bank account in your name alone, and do not mix these inheritance funds with other funds. This will increase the likelihood that a court confirms the inheritance to you as your separate property. You may also want to speak with an experienced family law attorney.
