Hello again, Kerryn, and thank you for the additional information.No, an ex-spouse does not typically have any legal grounds to dictate how their ex spends any of the income except to the extent the income may be used to determine child or spousal support that must be paid.There would otherwise normally be no basis to compel the ex to spend the gifts/inheritance in a certain way.
