Divorce - Financial provision - Application

The Case

Divorce Financial provision. The circumstances of the wife's application for financial relief had been such which justified their consideration the absence of the husband in the proceedings. The Family Division, in making awards for general needs and specific needs, arising from the wife's medical conditions, held that the wife's reasonable needs would be met by way of a financial award totalling 15,251,098. The retention and transfer of properties, liquid cash and other assets would realise 11,726,491 and the husband would have to pay the wife a cash lump sum of 3,474,607.
