Dealing with inheritances in a  family law property settlement is not as cut and dry as people might think.  There are many different factors that the Court will take into account as it's not as simple as, "well, my parents gave me that inheritance so it's all mine and my ex won't get any of it."  In this episode, we go deeper into the matter of inheritances, how they are treated by the court during a separation and what you need to know should you find yourself in this situation.  Recognised in Feedspot's Top 40 Family Law Podcasts List! https://podcasts.feedspot.com/fam ..read more
