Most jurisdictions have developed law, allowing parties and their estate planners to agree on how assets are to be treated in the event of separation or divorce.
The problem with matrimonial property disputes
What is the solution?
- The IRPTA provides a statutory certainty whereby couples can choose to keep designated trust assets intact, in defined shares and under common management, in the event of their separation or divorce.
- It also restricts the recognition of judgments of foreign courts from interfering with this principle. Family businesses are also particularly susceptible to the separation or divorce of the shareholders.
