Customer Question
My adult daughter, husband...

My adult daughter, husband, and children moved in with me in December 2008 to present. A rental agreement was signed at the beginning for $750.00 per month, I have received approximately four payments from them. they are now going through a divorce. Her soon to be ex-husband wants half of her upcoming inheritance from her fathers' estate for which I feel that he has no right to because he never helped or offered to assist him in any way. My ex-husband owned and lived in a three family for more than 30 years without any offer of help from the son in-law.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Connecticut

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

My daughter and son-in-law are not joint on any bank account or property ownership. My son-in-law has worked sparing if at all during the time of their marriage, living off of me and my daughter

Good morning. He would have no right to her inheritance. That is not something that would be considered a marital asset and if her father leaves this specifically to her, it would be hers to take and he would not be entitled to it.

As such, he would need to argue and meet the requirements over her objection and show there is a need for it
