I am 59 yrs divorcing my wife 42 yrs after 20yrs marriage. I have just filed form E, my wife left matrimonial home a year ago, met a man who since died leaving
her some £200K of his estate. I earn significantly more than her. I also support our five children.
would her inheritance be taken into account in relation to maintenance, capital assets and pension?
I doubt it monkey. This is becuase she acrued this money after she left you. But I would list it as money she has access to as it shifts the balance. She could say that the money is in trust or any other way of of disposing of it. Is she liable to capital transfer tax? This would lesson the amount she gets. Suck it an see. Chris
