My sister is getting or planning on getting a divorce from her husband (he's cheating). My father passed away and a portion of the house was left to my sister. My father's wife is buying her share out and she will be getting the money. There is no prenup or anything that I know of.
Can my sister legally hide the money or place it in a trust to prevent him from getting any? Does he get half of it anyway? Can my sister put it in her son's name for college? Will one of these options protect the money or will he(husband) still end of with some of it?
