Hello, my name is*****
How much was the inheritance and when was it put into the marriage.
Also what is the approximate value of the available assets.
How long have you been married and are there any dependant children.
The general principle is that inheritances should be ringfenced and go back to the party who introduced it. However if the inherited are needed to meet financial needs then it can be called upon.
The starting point is a 50/50 however quite often there is a departure from equality depending on needs. The reality is that you are likely to have similar housing needs. However if your incomes are different then there would be good reason to depart from an equal division in any event regards ***** ***** i.e your inheritance.
If the above does not apply due to similar incomes then you can claim your inheritance back before an equal division if it would provide your husband to meet his housing needs.
At first blush it is diffucult to give you a precise answer without all relevant information being available but it is possible to claim your inheritance back as set out above.
I hope you received my answer.
