Inheritances mean more to us than just wealth and assets – they are a legacy that has a special place within a family. Our private wealth solicitors can help you protect inherited wealth, property and trusts in case of divorce and preserve it for the next generation. Inherited wealth and property is taken into account when assets are divided during a divorce – even if they are protected by a trust. This means that a court can order you to sell or transfer inherited property if necessary to meet the needs of your former spouse and any children involved in the relationship. No divorce is easy but the risk of losing ancestral homes, cherished heirlooms or family legacies can make divorce proceedings even more difficult and emotional for you and your loved ones. We can help you protect the assets that are important to you if divorce does happen. Our specialist advice and representation takes an integrated approach combining tax, trust and family law expertise to deliver the best outcome for you and your family.
