yes a brother and a sister
It really comes down to whether theinheritance is treated as a marital asset or not. You do not automatically havea claim on his and vice versa. Indeed, if there is sufficient money elsewherein the breakup of the marriage to fulfil each spouse's needs, very ofteninheritance does not get touched
the other thing that is looked at it. Wherein the whole timescale of things, the money was received. Each case is lookedout on its merits and this will give you some reading http://www.marilynstowe.co.uk/2011/05/18/what-happens-to-an-inheritance-in-the-event-of-divorce/

If in ratings you feel thatyou expected more or it only helped a little, please ask me for further infobefore rating me negatively otherwise I don't get paid at all for my time andanswer. The thread remains open.It is not an instant service so sometimes you will get a response in minutesand sometimes it will be hours.
still not clear to me. . . does it make any difference if there is a will or not, at the moment there is not but if it was left to me by name in a will, it would be mine and not have to be shared with him, which is info I have received previously. The concern I have and my family and friends is that because there isn't a will and prob unlikely to be one that he will have a claim on it until the divoce is absolute.
My parents are very much alive and well at the moment although very elderly, if they die before the absolute the above applies. My husband obviously knows this and that could be why he is no rush even though he is seeing someone else and has been doing for some time.
We have been married for 37 years. his money he received 10 years ago and is in an account in his name. He has recently started coming ' home' to sleep after many months of not doing, although he is still seeing the same person who, has her own home. advised to do so by a solicitor is my opinion on that. Our house is paid for and we do have some money although not enough to buy us both a property. Our adult son still lives at home.
I am confused now as your answer came after I had finished with someone else. Am i paying again, I hope not.
Thanks for that, but I guess I just need to get on with things. Your comments were helpfull. sorry to rate a poor service.
Yes realised that about rating. This kinda thing is all new to me.
I really don't know, have been trying not think about things. If the house was sold along with assests it would buy 2 very small houses in this area. The problem for me would be affording to run mine. I work 30 hours and pushing 60 and dont want to be working any more than that. Thats why my inheritance is so important to me.
Thanks for your help
Thank you so much that is much clearer now. What you have said you have put in ordinary language a bit less 'jargonish' than that of your colleague.
Sorry you wont get the money, maybe he'll share it with you!
If you have a comments/compliments/complaints book (we do at work) please put my compliments in.
