There is a uk non nuptial discretionary trust that provides a set amount into the children's accounts which I control solely every month. I currently provide half of that to ex-wife as part of an undertaking for child support and half of that I use to help with contact. This as a whole amount is conveniently for ex-wife the same amount as has been awarded in spousal maintenance. I am in the process of getting that reduced to half so as I can just provide the half to her for child support as per the undertaking. The trustees of this trust have never provided me personally with any capital or income and their intention has always been that the money was to be used for the benefit of the children and the money is treated for tax purposes as the children's and they would not want me to use this money to pay my personal spousal maintenance. I am currently also a beneficiary however I'm looking into currently how I can remove myself.
There is another offshore non nuptial discretionary trust that provides a mortgage on my property in uk which she lives at with the kids which is roughly the same value as the property.
There is a small pension which he has said he will transfer over fully to ex-wife leaving me with nothing.
The evidence was more a tax return and I agreed verbally that in 2009 I earnt this amount as that's what I did earn but there was no specific evidence of employability as you call it.
My parents when I was a child. There is no suggestion either of the trusts are nuptial and the judge has stated that he has no power to order the trustees themselves or alter the trusts.
1. A lot
The trusts are dynastic.
