My husband has asked me for a divorce he has agreed his future inheritance can be used as part of the divorce settlement.
this would mean I could stay in the house as I could then afford to buy him out as the figure would be less.
My inheritance was used to help purchase the house.
we have been married thirty one years separated for two.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes to both questions we both agree it would be fair
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we have agreed to this but I am worried t might not be legal and may be thrown out in court.
Expert:  ukfamilysolicitor replied 1 year ago.
Hello
Thank you for confirming this.
Best thing to do is to have a consent order drawn up by a solicitor to confirm what you have agreed in respect of splitting the matrimonial finances. This would cost around £300. Once completed and signed - send it to the court at the end of the divorce proceedings so that the court can consider the same.
If the court approves this - it becomes legally binding.
It is really important that this is done as if not - it is possible for future claims to be made - which makes the position uncertain for you both.
The court fee for this is £50.
Can I help you with anything further?
Kind Regards

Just seen your further message.
You can just confirm in the consent order that the house is to be transferred to you and that your husband will have no claims in respect of this.

Just to confirm so long as he agrees we can you his future inheritance as part of the settlement.
Expert:  ukfamilysolicitor replied 1 year ago.
Hello
Yes you can use this as part of your reasoning for the agreement you have reached.
As well as putting in the consent order that the house will be transferred to you, it will also be detailed in the consent order that neither of you can make a claim against each other in the future, which includes inheritance.
Kind Regards
Caroline
