Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Are you in the process of a divorce where spousal support is an issue?
Ok, assuming that you mean that one of you will be seeking spousal support from the other, then wife's assets would be an important issue as to whether she should pay you support or whether you should pay her. So any inheritance would go into her separate assets and would be relevant in determining whether she had adequate funds to support herself or would need support or whether she may need to pay you support.
So yes, during the financial disclosure process in a divorce action, either spouse can request financial information from the other as to any assets that they own..
You are very welcome. Glad to help any time..
