(Family Division, Cohen J, 8 November 2019)

Financial Remedies – Divorce – Husband applied to set aside order giving wife leave to apply for financial relief.

The Family Division dismissed the wife’s application for leave to apply for financial relief. If the claim was allowed to proceed, there would effectively be no limit to divorce tourism.
