Good morning and thank you for your response. please leave it with me. I will be in court today so will prepare my advice during the day and get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Thank you.
My apologies. I sent you the above response by accident. I will opt out for another expert.
Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
How long have you lived together and how much did her grandmother leave her?
Are there any children involved and what is the value of the other assets?
Are you aware that the site charges extra for a phone call?
Are there any children involved?
Why does she want the savings now?
How long ago did each of your grandmothers die?
Will she agree to you having your £5,000 at the same time - and will she give credit for the £4,000 that she already has?
Realistically it is likely that the family court will say that you should each have your inheritance and that the balance should be split 50?50.
However if you do not agree that any should be withdrawn now then your only option is to freeze the accounts
This is an issue that you need to discuss matters with your wife using Family mediation
Please ask if you need further details
So you could both take £10,000 and it would be fair?
But you could negotiate on what the split would be - taking into account monies already received?
But you will each know that the money is as agreed and it is an issue that can be dealt with via Family Mediation
You are most welcome - I hope all goes well
