1 Annulment, Son's inheritance on Mon Oct 28, 2013 9:40 am


Arresto Menor
My husband and I separated more than a year ago and I am currently going through the annulment process. I have some money saved up and some checks n assets I received from my father's will that I have set aside for my son. My ex-husband, keeps calling me and pressurizing me to cash the checks and other assets so that he can borrow money from it- which I do NOT want since he has already lost all he owned in gambling.

I do not want him to gamble away our son's future. What can I do? How can I make the funds inaccessible to him by all means? TRUST fund under my son's name? any other options under Philippines Law to keep him away from getting his hands on the money because he is also known to have forged my signature in the past. Please help, thankyou!

The assets that you mentioned that you received from your father are solely yours. Generally,anything you received by way of gratuitous title does not form part of the absolute community of property and are likewise not considered conjugal. Therefore,you can dispose of those properties in any way you want.

but if it came from a will, then it should have been probated in court first.

as for checks, they should be encashed before they become stale. it's not really a crime to hide assets from a spouse, but it is one to lie in court when asked about the extent of your assets
