A new Supreme Court Case this week signalled a ‘significant change’ in the law when it comes to reopening divorce settlements.

If a husband (or wife) manages to pull the financial wool over the eyes of their former spouse the Supreme Court this week revisited the law determining when it was right to re-open a financial settlement in the situation where one spouse didn’t disclose relevant information.

What could this mean for those who have already agreed a settlement?

We asked an experienced family law barrister to take a look at the cases of Sharland and Gohil and gives us his insight into how the law has changed (click here).
