No, your spouse is not entitled to inheritances, or to money that you have not yet received.
Your inheritance is safe in the divorce. That said, your spouse may make a claim based on a loss of inheritance rights, which can mean that the value of your marital estate will tilt in their favor, and their settlement award will be larger than it otherwise would.
There are ways to fight this, but it requires an experienced Brooklyn divorce attorney who knows how to push back on claims along these lines.
