In 2014 I married my partner of 12 years in hospital on her death bed. She died 6 days later .I was left 70k pension which I placed into a kids account as myself a trustee. That was in there until last week when i transferred it into an account that's in the sole name of my child. Hes 15 and mature.
By 2015 I met someone ,quickly married again. We split 4 weeks ago. I had two kids with her. Them 2 live with her ,I live with the child from the first marriage.
Question. She wants this money in divorce settlement.
One solicitor says its inherited assets before marriage but another solicitor says differing comments as I used 8k of this to pay my 2nd marriage rather than a loan.
Can I spend this money or is she going to rob me

Awkward one but transferring it post [url=Resources/Library/Cohabitation-and-Separation_s33_m1852.html ]separation[/url] hasn’t strengthened your case I imagine

I guess your argument is this money is a non-matrimonial asset, which might be the case depending on the circumstances.

Its a difficult question to answer without knowing whether you and your partners housing and income needs can be met without this money being brought into play.

If you post more details on total assets, incomes etc, and proposed financial arrangements then someone might be able to comment further.

My income is 13k a year as I work part time being disabled, topped up with 10k a year in disability benefits for me and my 15 yr old.
Ex partner would be universal credit ,plus she receives disability pip for herself and dla for my 2 and 4 year old .
I expect her income would be about 2k a month on benefits .
