‘Maintenance for Life’ Revisited Supreme Court Appeal

In February 2017, the Court of Appeal’s decision in the Mills v Mills case to increase the ex-wife’s spousal maintenance payments 15 years after the divorce came as a bit of a surprise for family lawyers.

We assumed that ‘maintenance for life’ was on the way out given the increasing emphasis the Courts put on the need for the party receiving maintenance to do so for a short period of time, with an aim to become independent.

Yet another case from the London Courts where the parties appear to have more money than sense.

Money on divorce lawyers needs to be spent wisely and proportionately to the assets of the case. Why spend £1.5m on legal fees when there is only £10m in the pot? If the Judge is telling you that you are crazy, you need to pay attention!

Pointers to Successfully Navigate ‘Silver’ Divorce

The divorce rate among the over-50s is rising. The Office of National Statistics says the number of 'silver divorces' has risen by three- quarters in the past 20 years.

This is because people are living longer, there is also less stigma around divorce and women are now increasingly financially independent. Whilst the divorce process is the same no matter what your age, those married for longer tend to have more assets and this can make dividing these assets (including pensions, property and family businesses) more complex. On the flip side, they do not tend to involve children and parenting plans.

Here are some helpful pointers to successfully navigate the divorce process: http://www.parrishfamilylaw.co.uk/news-commentary/66-pointers-to-successfully-navigate-silver-divorce
