Hello, I have remarried , whereas my ex wife has not , I have a pension and money in trust. My question is does my ex wife have a claim on these assets, we did not sort out a financial settlement on divorce and i have only submitted a consent order recently with the courts but this is yet to go through
she has apporved the consent order but it hasn;t gone through yet
not disclosed assets on order and only recenly have been informed of the trust to be paid out to me as a beneficiary in the last couple of weeks
I was but didn't put it in consent order wanted to do a consent order so she wouldnt be able to claim any more money apart from child maintenance/spousal maintenance
living together for 6 years , my great uncle
Yes , 36 years ago
It was held in trust until his partner died , I dont know how much is involved about 200 grand.
just to basically re-emphasise my question , if no consent order has been approved by a judge can my my ex-wife claim on my estate even though i have remarried??
thank you for your help
