Late in Marriage Inheritance – In the same case as above, the wife sought to overturn the Probate Court finding that allowed the husband to keep an inheritance he received from his mother in November 2002. The Appeals Court affirmed the decision which turned on the finding that the marital partnership dissolved prior to the actual separation – in particular, when marriage counseling ended and the wife consulted with divorce attorneys in December 2000.
