the subject I need advice on concerns trust funds in divorce.
Hi Claire, before we get into details can I just check you aren't representing my ex wife!
do you practice from offices in Bromley?
ok good. This is the end of an 18 year marriage with 2 further years of cohabiting
in 2005 my father in law died. He left 50% of the house in trust to his 3 children. His wife lives on in the house. This trust has never been referred to by my wife and wasn't brought up during mediation. I learnt of its existence only last night.disclosure against the court timetable has yet to take place.
my understanding is that the judge will not be able to split the trust but will take it into consideration when dividing assets. Is this correct?
