I fear that money saved for my children over the years in the trust account will be taken. The savings mainly consist of child benefit and small regular payments of £50-100 per month. Is this safe?
Yes. Children’s savings accounts are safe in bankruptcy provided they involve small, regular payments. Where it has been an issue in the past, is when the bankrupt has stashed large amounts of cash in their kid’s savings accounts to hide the money from creditors. Not advisable.
