Thank you for your patience.
As both parties have remarried, then it is not possible to claim on the assets of their former spouses.
This is known legally as the "remarriage trap".
Put simply, if you divorce and then remarry without first having made a claim for a Financial Order in the divorce petition or having issued an application for a Financial Order, then you are barred from seeking maintenance orders, lump sum orders or property adjustment orders.
So, neither will be able to claim on the others assets.
I hope that this answers your question?
Do remember that I can only give you my opinion.
Another lawyer may have a different opinion. Litigation needs at least 2 parties and neither goes to court expecting to lose.
Nonetheless, one of them does, even though they have been told by their respective legal advisers that they have a good chance of success.
If there was a black-and-white answer to every legal problem there would be no need for anything to ever proceed to court!
