How can I stop ex from claiming half my inheritance should my mum die?
Can't divorce as havent been living back in the UK for 12 months and he wont agree to a divorce (he is still out of the country). He has made it clear he wants to claim half my mums estate and as we are still married there is nothing I can do about it. She isn't on her last legs so it isn't an immediate problem, but is it possible for her to change her will so he gets nothing? Or will he still have a claim?
He pays no maintenance and doesn't see the kids - another reason divorce would be hard. He is bankrupt in UK, and has left me with a lot of debt that I have mostly cleared now.
your mum can change her will any time she wants its not illegal, as for divorce you only have to wait 2 years to get divorced for his uneresonable behavour of having walked out of your life and leaving you with debts, which as long as you have all paper work, banks satements and the like you can show youve paid it, then this will also help towards any settlement.
