It is covered under section 37 of the matrimonial Causes Act that you cannot claim in financial proceedings money passing under a will - inheritances not yet received.
Surely this is a little different though. It isn''t money passing under a will, it has passed some years ago. Surely the fact that it is in trust is the same as if it were in a bank account as it can be taken out at any time?
They always kept their finances separate and he is not coming to the table and disclosing his financial affairs or his potential inheritance.
The way I have read the OP posts it is she that has suggested that there is no need for financial disclosurer. There may not even be that much disparity in pensions when you factor in that although he has contributed longer his salary is much lower.
It''s also a long time for both of them before they can get any benefit from their pension funds and while a pension fund is very nice to have you can''t live in it or feed your kids with it.
