Advising on potential nuptial dispute, involving an offshore trust fund
Ursula's client is the beneficiary of an offshore trust structure, of which there are four other beneficiaries in the trust. Trust funds were used for the benefit of the purchase of a family home post marriage and a large number of industrial buildings that surround the farm, which are rented out commercially. The husband also runs his own business from the farm buildings. The wife does not accept that the matrimonial pot includes the value of the property, purchased by the trust including the associated industrial buildings. In other words, the case involves a potential nuptial dispute, involving an offshore trust fund.
