I am trying to figure out how to protect myself and my son. My husband has a son (he's 13)from a previous marriage (whom I love), but the ex wife if a terrible person. Can she come after part of my home (which I purchased myself before I ever married him), my 401k plan, and his life insurance policy that I pay for if something happens to him? Someone told me she can and I am shocked that this could be. Please help me figure out how to protect everything I worked for myself that I want to leave to my son.
