C v C [2009] EWHC 837 ( 27 April 2009)

Family Law Newswatch report

In her ancillary relief claim the wife was asserting that the husband had a beneficial interest in a range of properties, including the matrimonial home, whose titles were registered in the names of members of the husband's family and in the name of a company in which a family member had an interest. The wife had failed to make out her case. There had been no express statement of trust and there was no evidence that the money used in the acquisition and development of the disputed assets was the husband's money.
