Hi, this question remains open. Please could you provide the requested information so that I can assist you.
Thanks for confirming. Inheritance is not an automatic matrimonial asset but the details must be disclosed as part of the financial negotiations. The court will first consider the matrimonial assets, which will likely be everything apart from the inheritance due to the length of the marriage. If both your needs can be met from matrimonial assets the court will not bring the inheritance into division between you. If needs cannot be met then the inheritance will be brought in to divide between you.
