Have you managed to find me the information I need please?
Expert:  Clare replied 6 months ago.

Any assets in your sole name are safe whether you remain married or not - as will your share of any joint assets

If you could explain a little more about what has happened it may be possible to be more specific about your position

Thank you - that's what I was hoping and if I have further queries I will get back to you at a later date
