Divorce Victory For Ex-Wives In Supreme Court Battle
We helped two women, Alison Sharland and Varsha Gohil, challenge their divorce settlements at the Supreme Court after their husbands were found to have misled them over their wealth.
The two women believed they were duped into accepting ‘unfair’ divorce settlements, based on knowingly false information provided by their ex-husbands.
Their cases were heard at a three-day hearing in 2015 and seven Supreme Court judges unanimously ruled in the ex-wives’ favour. It was the first time in a generation that the highest court in the land had heard cases on the issue of non-disclosure in divorce proceedings.
"This judgment sent out the clear message that dishonesty will not be tolerated. Both women found themselves in an unfair situation where they were duped into accepting a smaller settlement than they may have been entitled to.
Both husbands denied their dishonesty and hid behind highly technical arguments to avoid the consequences. In both cases, the Supreme Court has seen through those arguments to expose the true picture."
