ANCILLARY RELIEF: Golubovich v Golubovich [2011] EWCA Civ 479

Date:16 JUL 2011

(Court of Appeal; Thorpe and Etherton LJJ and Baron J; 30 March 2011)

Following the Court of Appeal's decision that the Russian divorce was to be recognised by the English court, the wife's application for ancillary relief had to be made under Pt III MFPA 1984. At about the same time it was established that the husband's parents held the beneficial interest in the matrimonial home, not the husband.

The husband's appeal against an award to the wife under Part III was dismissed. Husband failed to make proper disclosure and judge rejected his oral evidence.
