Thanks for your question.
Only the matrimonial assets of the marriage are subject to settlement negotiations and proceedings at Court. Your assets (ie. the capital sum from the sale of the house and your inheritance) are your own and provided this remains the case then she will not be able to make a claim on your assets.
