Is it correct that, according to the solicitor, the money in the life trust will be protected from the ex's potential claim?
My parents are in the process of writing their wills. A share of their assets is to be left to me but rather than directly to me it is being put in a trust. The purpose of this is to protect it from any potential claim by my ex. I have been separated for 7.5 years, still married, the divorce proceedings have stalled because I want a consent order and he is ignoring requests for the information needed to draw it up. I don't know whether or not his intention is to claim money from me. The solicitor who is drawing up the wills says it is fine for me to be the only beneficiary of this trust because it is a life trust, and the money will be protected. Is this correct?
