The Section 25 Interpreter: Ancillary Relief and Capital Provision
Date:10 JAN 2006

Philip Moor QC, 1 Hare Court. A year ago the author reviewed the previous year's reported decisions which contained an ancillary relief element (The Day After Tomorrow: Coping with Ancillary Relief" [2005] Fam Law 116). Philip Moor QC endeavours with this new article to repeat the exercise, one year on, summarising the effect of the cases that have found their way into the law reports since then. The article poses the kinds of questions that a client might well ask including: (1) Has the approach of the courts to short marriages changed since White v White? (2) Is it relevant that a husband brings a short marriage to an end by an adulterous relationship? (3) Can a wife rely on a legitimate expectation of a higher standard of living by marrying a very rich husband? (4) Can a spouse prevent the other spouse from proceeding with a divorce petition overseas? See February [2006] Fam Law 108 for the full article.
