Protecting a wife’s property in second divorce

Corey acted for a wife on her (and her husband’s) second divorce. His client retained the former matrimonial home from her first marriage and divorce. There had been little financial contribution from her second husband, who claimed an unrealistic level of interest in the wife’s property and sought to force a sale of it.

Corey dealt with the client calmly and supportively, whilst his robust advocacy was required to cross-examine the husband and persuade the court not to order a sale of wife’s property.

A sale of wife’s property was prevented, with the husband being awarded a small lump sum.
