Divorce ruling advice

The head of family law at a solicitors that has offices in Mansfield and Kirkby has offered advice in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling to allow appeals by two wives against their husbands who failed to provide full and accurate disclosure of their assets when the court made their divorce settlements.

The case involving Alison Sharland and Varsha Gohil made national headlines.

Nick Aspley, of Marchants Solicitors, said: “These judgments confirm that if couples want to come to a fair divorce settlement you cannot lie.

“The principle of full disclosure of financial circumstances cannot be ignored and it is everyone’s right to have a fair hearing.

“There may be others out there who feel they have been misled who may seek to challenge their divorce settlements.”
