We are the solicitors for Mrs Pamela Rosemary White.
We have seen the article entitled "Increase in Divorce Pay Out" in the Litigator's View column of The Lawyer dated 1 March.
We would like to clarify any misunderstanding arising from this article.
On 18 February, the House of Lords gave both Mr White and Mrs White leave to appeal the judgement of the Court Of Appeal. Both parties are dissatisfied with the judgement of the Court of Appeal. They want the House of Lords to adjudicate on the extent to which the law relating to partnerships should be taken into account as a factor – under Section 25 of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 – in determining their respective financial claims on divorce. This is the significant point of public importance which the House of Lords have given leave to determine.
