Q. I am currently splitting from my husband of 14 years. Our investments, including a rental and the family home which I am still living in with our children, are in a family trust. Both of us are equal beneficiaries. Now my husband is threatening to demand a quick sale of the family home/farm (which also provides me with my income) if I don’t agree to gift him half of my overseas inheritance. What sort of standing do I have?
