Hi

Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

Was the loan documented?

Do you mean that his wife has made a claim within the financial side of the divorce?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The loan was not documented but it was agreed between my son and my two daughters who are trustees for my wife that the money he took was a loan and he would return it by selling the property and transferring the money back into the trust account or he would transfer the property to the trust, his wife had no part in this deal, she has now separated from him and is claiming that this property is part of his estate
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
his wife has made a claim n the financial side of the divorce
