EU laws continue until at least 2038 and beyond

Date: 17/11/2020 Type: Articles Topic: HNW Divorce |
Author: Prof David Hodson OBE MICArb, iFLG

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020.  But in matters of law it fully leaves on 31 December 2020.  But EU laws will continue to apply, and be applied, in the English family courts from 1 January 2021 onwards, probably until 2038 and perhaps beyond.  This fact is not much known, has not been widely publicised but is very relevant for those who wish to continue to rely on EU laws in their family affairs.

Date: 21/09/2020 Type: Articles Topic: HNW Divorce | Finances | Modern Family |
Author: Lucy Greenwood

Marital agreements are becoming increasingly popular in England & Wales as more couples seek greater certainty of financial outcomes in the event they divorce. The increasing number of international couples (who may be more used to such agreements) has also made marital and civil partnership agreements more popular and culturally acceptable in England & Wales.

Hot topics in proceedings for financial provision after a foreign divorce (Part III)

Date: 21/09/2020 Type: Articles Topic: HNW Divorce | Finances | Modern Family |
Author: Michael Allum

Proceedings for financial claims after a divorce has already taken place in another country (known in England and Wales as Part III applications) are politically, legally, and culturally sensitive.  These applications enable a court in one country to determine whether a financial outcome made in another country is fair and adequate and if not, additional financial relief can be secured. This can sometimes lead to very large financial settlements.  This talk deals with the most relevant cases in the last 12 months and discusses some current thorny issues including the difficulty in sharing English pensions after a foreign divorce post 31 December 2020.

Family law leaves the EU: the conjunctive or disjunctive interpretation resolved by EU guidance

Date: 07/09/2020 Type: Articles Topic: HNW Divorce |
Author: David Hodson OBE MICArb

Over the summer there was real uncertainty concerning the proper and appropriate interpretation of a key part of the 2019 EU Withdrawal Agreement (WA).  Not a matter of mere academic or political interest, it was vital for family law practitioners to know how to prepare for EU exit, specifically what steps should be taken in their cases this autumn and winter.  Last week the EU published guidance which very helpfully clarified the position, confirmed by the UK Ministry of Justice.
