A key component of divorce proceedings is the true and accurate disclosure of assets between the parties.

Where one spouse apparently conceals ownership of value it is open to the other spouse to seek to obtain disclosure orders to test the veracity of the other party.

Martin Kenney & Co. has, on numerous occasions, obtained interim orders in aid of divorce proceedings onshore, normally focused upon attributing beneficial ownership of an offshore vehicle into which an asset of significant value has been vested.

Similarly, we have also obtained orders which have assisted in proving that the settlor of a trust vehicle has not in fact relinquished control of that vehicle and therefore the assets vested in the trust are available to be distributed within the matrimonial estate.
