i am going through a divorce at the moment after being married for 24 years. My wife left me and 3 children 15 month ago. A year before we split her mother died leaving her an estate worth around £450.000. Am I entitled to any of this money. Her lawyers say I am not, as is was not part of our matrimonial assets.????????????????? but i believe i am entitled to half her estate.
thanks for your reply. her inheritance is in her own named accounts apart from one bond which is in joint names. We have a family home in joint names and I have savings of c. £150,000. The ages of the children are 24, 21 and 19.
hi claire. i also gave my daughter some money last year so she can start to look to buy a property, and my parents some money 15 years ago. Can theses amounts be taken off my assets.?????????
yes. she is adding these monies to my assets, and wanting a 50% share.
no claire, i gave the money to my daughter after my wife left. it is in her bank. she is 24 and a school teacher,
