Following your great advice our Divorce case was finally dismissed in court.
I would greatly appreciate some further advice to get my Divorce to completion.However, there are a few issues that i would like advice on.
I am about to start proceedings and have tried to have discussions with my ex which have already become difficult. When he started the divorce in 2005 we had agreed the division of assets with the help of both solicitors when the marital home was sold. I used my settlement as down payment for the property that I now live in.
Now 8 years on, I received an inheritance (about 5 years ago) from a family member that he is aware about but not how much. I used most of the money to pay off some of my mortgage and some I have put into savings. My 12 year old daughter lives with me. I am not sure what he did with his share of the money.
a) Where do I stand legally on the issue of my inheritance.
b) Is he entitled to any of my inheritance since the asset's were agreed and divided at the time of our separation / divorce.
c) Do I have to include the inheritance in the financial settlement?
d) Can he insist on finding out how much I got and do I have to tell him.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
