Here, the wife’s separate estate was awarded a $41,000 reimbursement claim against the community estate which the trial court used to reach a 60/40 property split. The court of appeals held that the wife failed to prove $32,000 of that amount was her separate property and this required a reversal of the entire property division since the $32,000 represented about 20% of the entire net community estate.
