What's the status of comingled funds?

Each venue has different standards as to whether comingled funds are always community or separate, for the sake of marital dissolution. In Colorado or California, for example, even separate funds which are comingled in a joint account are presumed to be "gifts" to the marital property. Other states are less clear on this (like Michigan or New York) but still, because of the difficulty of tracing fungible assets, it's very rare that comingled funds can be characterized as separate assets.
