This mini-episode comes directly from a question sent to our team and is part of the show's Lightning Round where we answer your questions.
Do You Divide Inheritance Among Assets?
First off, I'm sorry. I can only assume this question comes at a painful time in your life.
A divorce is one of the hardest things you may walk through for many reasons, but certainly it is the case financially. How you split an inheritance depends on the state you live in to exactly how your assets will be divided.
This quickly becomes a legal issue rather than only a financial issue. As long as a couple of things are clear that I'll discuss on the show, you will likely be able to make a case to receive a full inheritance.
