Trusts not matrimonial but are they considered on settlement?

I will be in the early stages of negotiations. Stbxh is a high earner and over a mil in property held in trust. My question is, would that mean that I would get a higher percentage of the 580k from the matrimonial pot? Offsetting pensions so that's not an issue.

If we were to go strictly 50/50 I would struggle to house me and dds adequately unless I moved somewhere where prices were cheaper and he wouldn't allow it anyway. I've only recently started working part time after being at home for 6 years, the children will be living with me, seeing him EOW as his job is more important. He wants a clean break but I'm asking for phased maintenance for at least 4 years. By which time our youngest will have started school and I will have retrained and working full time.

Does this sound fair? There's already a lot of noise that I'm fleeceing him dry. But he's happy to hang on to his 89k net income, no spousal and a 50/50 split, whilst refusing to continue paying school fees.

You need detailed legal advice. No one could possibly advise you on the Internet not Least as they have not read the trust documentation. Pm me for a recommendation or search on resolution website
