Judgment, published: 30/07/2004

Items referring to this

  • Wife's appeal, out of time, against a consent order made in 2010 after she realised that a trust that she believed had been set up to benefit the children in fact had the husband as the primary beneficiary. The judge ruled that there had been material non-disclosure and the wife had not delayed once the information had come to light. The order was set aside. Judgment, 27/07/2015, free
  • Application by a former husband to set aside a consent order on the basis that, at the time of the agreement, his former wife failed to make full and frank disclosure in relation to a company of which she was both a director and shareholder. It was his case that the non-disclosure upon which he relies was a material factor in that he entered into the agreement to compromise his financial claims arising in the divorce proceedings on the basis of incomplete (and, on his case, misleading) information. Cases of Sharland v Sharland and Gohil v Gohil considered. Judgment, 17/02/2016, free
