CW v CH (MFPA 1984 Part III: Interim Applications)  EWFC B110 January 2022
Published: 22/02/2022 09:00
Wife’s application under MFPA 1984 Part III for interim periodical payments and a costs allowance for legal fees. Dispute as to whether W had valid claim, to be addressed at substantive hearing, did not preclude interim award. H could afford to meet the interim claim and W had needs that she was unable to meet or obviate. Judicial doubts about merits of W’s application were balanced against H’s ability to meet order and the standard of living during the marriage, with cautionary note that final outcome may be different.
