The recent Court of Appeal decision in Whaley v Whaley (2011) EWCA Civ 617 concerned Jersey law trusts set up by the father-in-law of the wife of which the husband was a beneficiary.  The parties were divorcing and the wife asked for the assets of the trust to be taken into consideration in the  divorce settlement.  The Court of Appeal after reviewing the arguments of both parties rejected the appeal by the husband and concluded that it was right for the trust funds to be taken into account when making the ancillary relief order.
