Mills v Mills

Aug 1, 2018 | 2 comments

The Supreme Court recently decided the above thorny issue of spousal maintenance.
Mr Mills went to Court to have the spousal maintenance he pays to his former wife reduced as The Court of Appeal had ironically increased the amount he had to pay when he went to the lower Court to have it reduced! Mr Mills appealed the decision!
The Supreme Court rejected the Court of Appeal’s decision and reduced the award back down to the original sum set some years ago.
It seems the only winners were the lawyers!
