Assets of a family trust not necessarily at risk on a matrimonial breakdown

With thanks to team member James Ford, the post this week focuses on another recent decision of the Family Court concerning trusts.

The case is Morton V Morton [2012] FamCA 30. If you would like a copy of the case please email me.

Essentially, the case confirms that, where appropriately structured, the assets of a family trust will not be considered matrimonial property on a relationship breakdown.

Until next week.
