Keeping up-to-date with case law, may not be fun for you. However, as your local divorce solicitors, we don’t just switch off at 5pm and head home – we are here to keep in the know on your behalf! In doing so, we’ve stumbled upon a recent case whereby a husband sought to argue that the wife’s financial claims had been finalised during Judicial Separation Proceedings, and that she was not entitled to make a further claim during the Divorce proceedings. 
MG Legal, local divorce Solicitors, are constantly keeping up to date with various case law and judgements so that they can have a greater understanding of how the Court’s current policies, decisions and views could affect the outcome of your hearing. 
It is usually a topic that you wouldn’t really consider when getting divorce: what happens if your spouse (or recently ex-spouse) passes away. Unfortunately, it is a more common event than people would expect and it can, in some cases, change the outcome of proceedings in a dramatic way. 
 
In the case of WA v Executors of the Estate of HA & Others [2015] EWHC 2233 (Fam), WA, the wife of the deceased, appealed against a Consent Order on the basis that the Husband committed suicide 22 days after the Order was made. She argued that this constituted a Barder event, and she should therefore be entitled to claim back the sum already paid to the Husband.
