Periodical payments, capitalisation & variation after Mills

Live webinar to be broadcast 4th October 2018

  • The Supreme Court decision in Mills v Mills brought of variation of periodical payments to the forefront of family lawyers' minds. Although the appeal was on a narrow ground - whether the lower court could refuse the wife's application for variation of periodical payments to pay her rent when she had previously been given a capital sum to buy a house  - the judgment, in overturning the Court  of Appeal, provides a handy starting point for looking again at the issues at stake in such cases.

    In this webinar Philip Cayford QC, who appeared in the Supreme Court hearing, will review the arguments and outcome in Mills, look again at the leading authorities of North, Pearce and Yates and provide some suggestions as to what all this means for anyone advising on a variation application now.

    When? 1-2pm, 4th October 2018
