Securing more than 50% of assets for a wife

Ronald represented a Respondent wife through the Direct Access Scheme at a two-day trial at short notice.

This was an involved case, where there was already a maintenance order made against the applicant husband in Belgium and a significant proportion of the assets, that amounted to only £350,000, being ‘ring fenced’ into the children’s bank and trust accounts.

The wife was awarded more than half of the assets, despite the marriage being a long one.
