Supreme Court divorce ruling shows zero tolerance for dishonesty

Two women who were misled into accepting “unfair” divorce settlements by their former husbands won a landmark challenge in Britain’s highest court.
Judges at the UK’s top court agreed, unanimously ruling, that dishonesty in divorce proceedings will not be tolerated.
Both women maintain that their ex-husbands misled judges about how much they were worth, forcing them into accepting “unfair divorce payouts”.
“Anything less than full and frank disclosure of assets in divorce cases will not be tolerated by the courts,” said Jo Edwards, chairwoman of Resolution, the family law organisation. “This has significant implications for other cases where assets are suspected of having been concealed, and could see many other recently finalised cases being reopened.”
