They have been married over ten years and the husband has just left her. They have jointly owned house with poss £100k equity after mortgage. They both have individual pension pots and my daughter took her own house, currently rented out, worth £200k into the marriage it is still in her name.
There is $500k locked into USA green card EB5 scheme too, this money was raised by remortgaging the main house. Also my daughter will receive an inheritance next month from New Zealand worth about £95k. There are some additional savings in ISA and BS savings account to offset main house mortgage plus she has £30k in premium bonds.
The key issues are can she protect her house she rents and her personal savings and inheritance?
Her husband may have some other savings and ISA but nothing significant that I am aware of; he did not bring any substantial assets into the marriage.
She has always earned more than him, I think the split is £50-60k for him and £80-90k for her.
Just a concern at the moment so we want to be prepared if he does try to claim 50% of my daughters assets. Splitting main house and joint savings is not a problem.
