This post is sort of an extension of thought from my previous thread on Trusts and the family Court. So if you have a moral issue with Divorce/Separation planning please don't comment. Experience here has taught me that people will tend to PM instead of posting when there is a post reply from someone questioning why this is needed at all etc - well you either know or you don't. OK so now for the scenario so far. A male in his 50's has accumulated a decent sum. He intends on buying a house and investing the rest in shares. He then wants to marry (a young and attractive Asian female) and maybe have kids. Should the marriage not work out (what's the chance of this with a 20 year plus age gap!? Not much but he accumulated his sum by preparing for the worst in most things) he wants to protect what he has worked had for. In this circumstance how much protection would a Binding Financial Agreement offer? Would he end up being kicked out of his house after say 10 years of marriage? Would he loose some of all of his shares? What about that Trust he is the Trustee and Appointer of? In the ideal world the new wife would agree not to make a claim on the shares he has purchased prior to the marriage even though she would benefit from the dividends throughout the marriage. She would also agree not to make a claim on the house even though she lived in it. I somehow have the feeling that an agreement such as this would not last long in the Family Court....does anyone care to comment?
