Do I get half of my ex-spouse's inheritance?

As you and your spouse work through the issues related to your divorce, you may be getting hung up on many aspects of asset division. This may be especially true if you have considerable wealth or complex assets. Numerous real estate properties, complicated investments or priceless art are only a few assets that can slow down your divorce while you go through valuation and negotiation. However, what about your spouse's inheritance?

Preparation can make a high-asset divorce smoother

Regardless of how amicable two parties may be, there is no such thing as an easy divorce. The process is challenging and legally complex even when two Georgia parties are willing to work together and have productive negotiations about the details of their final divorce order. Preparation can lessen the difficulty of this process, particularly for high asset divorces.

Working toward financial security after your divorce

Despite the emotional upheaval, there may be things you are looking forward to when your divorce process is over. Maybe you plan to change your name, take a trip or finish your degree. Perhaps you have already set aside some time to thoroughly examine your finances and create a plan for your future.

As the lesser-earning spouse, you could have a claim to alimony

If you earned less than your spouse over the duration of your marriage or you did not work for a large portion of your marriage, the prospect of divorce could be frightening. As the lesser-earning spouse, you may have serious concerns about your financial stability after the process is finalized.

Dissipation of assets may damage your post-divorce future

Your spouse filing for divorce may have been unexpected or a long time coming, but the reality of it is certainly upsetting. When the shock and confusion began to abate, you may have begun to feel fearful. What will your future be like? How will you get along financially? These questions may be especially pertinent if you sacrificed your own career to raise children and keep house while your spouse's career flourished.
