Where a party in divorce proceedings was living in a care home, we were insturcted to liaise with a council over whether a settlement proposal in matrimonial ancillary relief proceedings which involved the direction of money into a trust would be covered by the deprivation of assets rules for means testing purposes. If the deprivation rules applied, the marital settlement would simply go to defray local authority care costs.

Providing advice in a matrimonial ancillary relief claim about the social care means testing implications of a proposed settlement where a party was in a care home and how the local authority response may be mitigated.

To provide evidence on causation in a claim for professional negligence against a solicitor where property placed in trust was recovered against by a local authority

In an action involving a disputed estate under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, advising on the availability of statutory care funding which may mitigate the dependency.
