Council intervention in matrimonial settlement resisted

21 March 2014

Wrigleys Community Care team advised a matrimonial solicitor concerning a proposed settlement of matrimonial property in ancillary relief proceedings

This matter involved the settlement of capital by the Respondent into a trust where the applicant lived in a care home supported by the local authority.

The council argued that by signing a consent order in the ancillary relief proceedings agreeing that her claim could be settled in this way, and as a result no property coming to her direct, the applicant was depriving herself of an asset for care fees purposes.

Having given advice, Wrigleys were asked to argue the legal issue with the council. The council dropped its claim with the result that proper provision could be made for the client.
