Scots law says that assets accrued during marriage are to be “fairly” shared between the parties. Where a party to a marriage has a disability the court is entitled to take this into account when dividing up the assets. The nature of your illness is such that a court would do so here. You should engage a good family lawyer in your area to help you with this. That is very important.
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
