'This is yet another case in which an unfair settlement has been agreed
because of one party being dishonest and not sharing all the details of their
wealth to the courts.
We are pleased that the Supreme Court
has agreed to hear this case alongside Alison Sharland’s. Both cases raise
serious issues about how the courts should handle cases where information shared
with the court and used to agree a divorce settlement is later found to be false
We believe the situation that both
women find themselves in is unfair and that is why we applied for permission to
take their cases to the Supreme Court.
In this case the Court of Appeal
judges admitted having sympathy with Mrs Gohil’s situation. In our view if
family law judges, who are given broad discretion to ensure fairness in
proceedings, are having to acknowledge this then something in the letter of the
law has stopped that fairness from prevailing.
Dishonesty in any legal proceedings
should not be tolerated; the family court should not be an exception. There are
numerous legal arguments to be heard by the Supreme Court but we hope that
ultimately justice will be done and will be seen to be done.'
A practical and user friendly guide to the more challenging areas of ancillary relief practice
