Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
An inheritance is the separate asset of the beneficiary, not a marital asset. So the husband will not get any of the inheritance in the divorce at all.
She has nothing to worry about and she will keep the entire inheritance as her separate property.
That is something entirely different and she would have to handle that through the divorce court if they are in the process. She could also just contact the bank and have new cards and checks sent to her if she is on the account..
Well, if she is listed as a joint owner on them, she can just go to the bank, take out some money, open a new account in only her name, and then not give him the checkbook...
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time.
If you feel your original question and any related follow ups have been answered, I would very much appreciate a positive rating on the answer I have provided as that is the only way I receive credit for my work. If you have a new question the JustAnswer folks require that you start a new question page, but you can request me by putting "For Barrister" in the caption and they will get it to me.
