    Our accountant advised us that the money should go to a trust, then u borrow from the trust with an interest free repayment deferred vertically forever loan , if u ever split, the loan is recalled, then it can be given back to u later once ur assets are divided .... Ie u don't officially own the inheritance money so it can't be divided....

    Also I've heard Hermes handbags are pretty good investments.

    I would totally without a doubt take and hide the money and tell your husband a much much lower figure.

    I think this is foolish and dangerous advice.

    OP please do not take on board silly opinions such as this.

    as others have pointed out above, I believe full disclosure and honesty and transparency are required in these kinds of dealings.

    you'll only trip yourself up later if you start "hiding" money. besides, if OP and her hubby do not end up splitting, it's hardly conducive for an enduring healthy marriage is it?

    Default Legal type question re inheritance

    I have heard about people buying assets in secret and hiding them in safety deposit boxes without their partner's knowledge (pretty drastic measures though)

    To be fair @turquoisecoat women in abusive relationships on here are advised to squirrel away money all the time. I think given the OP's personal situation where her DH has treated her badly in the past and she fears for her future, how is this different?

    As a lawyer I would never advocate doing the wrong thing but there are probably legal ways you can protect yourself OP. only you know how much you are talking about and the state of your marriage.

    I see squirreling away $50 here and there as a very different scenario to trying to hide a significant investment. I assume we're talking at least a few hundred thousand $k here.

    I do agree that the OP's union with her husband does not sound ideal but I think to blankly say "just hide it" is poor advice.

    hopefully OP seeks the professional advice required to try and get this sorted legally and transparently.

    Thanks again for the advice everyone. I don't think I could stash the money away and not tell my hubby. His dishonesty is what undermined us in the first place, so I don't think I could stoop to it too and continue to hold my head high. However, if there's a way that I can invest it so it's safe if we split, I'll certainly investigate that. You never know - it might even help keep him on the straight and narrow if he knows he will miss out if I tell him to bugger off.

    You have a different opinion. It doesn't make other opinions "silly", it just makes them different to yours.

    Firstly, sorry you and your family are going through this. It is never easy.

    I think sometimes things like wills/inheritances do take a while to finalise. So you will have some time to see a specialist and make a plan.
