In this article Natasha Isaac and Farhana Shahzady explore the issues facing women going through the menopause during divorce proceedings, including evidence of effects of symptoms, and to what extent those symptoms can be shown to affect earning capacity.

Isaac and Shahzady interrogate whether the current legal framework surrounding financial remedy orders provides adequate and equal provision for women on divorce in light of these questions. This ‘hot topic’ for financial remedy practitioners is addressed in advance of, and inspired by, the new survey published by the Family Law Menopause Project.
