I am currently going through a divorce. I am due inheritance from my late cousins estate, however, this has been pending for 3 years as it has been complicated and to date It still has not gone to probate. I therefore do not know how much I am to inherit or when I am likely to receive it. My soon to be ex husband is keen to stake a claim on it even though I do not have it. I wondered where I stood with this as surely if I don''t have it then it is not an assett. There are no assetts within the marriage only debt. We have already reached Decree Nisi. He keeps asking for updates on the inheritance through his solicitor which is costing more money which I do not have. I have a 16 year old and a 21 year old at uni who are not his children. He has no children and is an only child. In time he will have a huge inheritance of his own.
Q1 - is he entitled to my inheritance that I do not have yet
Q2 - how can I stop him from going on about it
Q3 - ho wcan I stop him from trying to make a claim on it in the future
We were married for 6 yrs. The children are not his, we have no children together. No court proceedings unless of course he wants to pursue the inheritance through court, however, as I said I haven''t got it and don''t know when I will or how much it will be
Six year marriage with no children! why does he think he has any claim? is he disabled perhaps, did he come from another country to marry you?, if not it sounds like lets see what i can get rather than any legitimate claim.
This is a short and childless marriage.
You don`t know if you will receive any inheritance.
If you do you don`t know when.
You can`t share what you don`t have, and why oh why do they think he is entitled anyway?.
