Hello-Im new to this-and its quite a complex story!I married my wife 8 years ago(3 stepchildren all over 18 now)and have been separated for 1year.My wife was/is very wealthy-when we were first married she showed me a portfolio of her trust-shares,property,land,etc in excess of £8million.Subsequently our first year of marriage was wonderful,first class holidays,sports cars the works-.Then customs froze all the money(still frozen 7years later).Obviously things changed alot after that-lets just say when poverty knocks on the door-love jumps out the window!As I said were separated now-and solicitors say customs should be finished with us this year-so divorce proceedings havnt started yet-until customs have finished!She has offered me £100k as a settlement-and depending on what you read-trusts arent divorce proof anymore-im wondering has anyone had any similar situation such as this?How do I find out what kind of trust it is?Discretionary probably-which according to some is bad news for me!
