£26 million divorce, husband seeks spousal maintenance
In an ongoing case where there are around £26mn in assets to be divided on divorce where I act for the husband. We have, on his behalf, successfully achieved a court order that his wife pays him a substantial sum of spousal maintenance each month as he is studying and not currently earning. The assets in the case are derived from the wife’s businesses which have now been sold and the proceeds invested in a wide variety of alternative assets. The husband played a large role in the generation of the wealth so the extent of each party’s contribution is a live issue for the court to determine. Currently full disclosure of the assets is being sought. However, given the wife’s inability to produce documents on time and in accordance with court orders it is likely that the case will be extended with enforcement court orders. It also seems likely that the proceedings will be fully contested in court.
