Inherited Wealth and Pre-marital assets

Call our free legal helpline on freephone 0808 139 1606 for initial guidance on inherited wealth and pre-marital assets, or send an email to us at [email protected]

Inherited wealth and pre-marital assets can be hotly contested in divorce settlements, especially if there is a large amount of money at stake. It can be a particularly emotive topic, with inheritance often having a symbolic meaning as well as significant financial implications.

The law will look at inheritances and assets that were brought into the marriage differently to other assets that have been acquired during the marriage, so they call for careful consideration by a solicitor who is experienced in the financial aspects of divorce.

Assets like a property, a pension or an inherited sum of money may have been an important part of your life as a couple, or it may be that some assets were kept separate from one another during the marriage. Each situation is different, so the advice you receive will reflect that and what you’re going to be entitled to.
