Post-separation assets held not to be matrimonial property

by Catherine Banks on February 20, 2015

Catherine Banks of our High Wycombe office acted for the husband in the recently reported cases of JL v SL [2014] EWHC 3658 (Fam) and JL v SL [2015] EWHC 360 (Fam). These are important decisions on what is and is not matrimonial property. It is good news for husbands and wives who have inherited or created or acquired wealth after separation. They are now more likely to retain such assets on divorce.
