Default Selling inherited property-can the ex have a claim on the proceeds

I am divorced and have joint custody of my children with my ex wife. She has primary residence.

I inherited my family home where I am currently residing with my brother. My ex-wife tried to claim it as a matrimonial home during the divorce, even though she was only an occasional visitor to the place.

The judge ruled that it was not a matrimonial home as it was inherited and she did not live here.

My question is: I now want to sell this house now and move to be closer to my children. I pay child support according to tables. If I sell this inherited home, would my ex then be able to launch another lawsuit and get more money from me that way?

Abba435 has a little shameless behaviour in the past

Not a cent especially if you have that ruling

Kinso is an unknown quantity at this point

No. Your date of separation is set, what you owned on that day will not change.
