Inheritance question


#1

My sister left me around 310,000. My spouse left me before my sister died and filed for separation. We were married for 23 years. We have been legally separated for a year now and went to mediation. My husband is refusing to pay any alimony b/c of my inheritance.

What is the law an nc regarding inheritance. Does my inheritance have an effect on my spouses ability to pay alimony and retirement? I ama teacher making around 30,000. My spouse is an engineer making over 90,000.
