She might need to rethink her plans! She is not automaticallyentitled to anything in respect of the inheritance provided there is othermoney around to look after her needs. Please note that it is not a case ofequalising incomes but looking at all her income, benefits etc and looking atyour income, (post separation), to see if she has enough money to live on.
