Financial Orders - Claiming Many Years After the Divorce
Whilst a Decree Absolute legally concludes a marriage in England and Wales, it does not necessarily end a person’s financial commitment to their ex-spouse.

Safda will focus on case law developments in this area, as well as concepts of strike out and changes to the Family Procedure Rules 2010.
