Judgment in 'stratospheric' Part III MFPA claim published

Juffali judgment and comprehensive summary available

Last week Family Law Week reported that Christina Estrada had been awarded by Mrs Justice Roberts in the High Court a sum of about £75 million from her former husband, Sheikh Walid Juffali. Ms Estrada had sought a sum of £238 million. 

That judgment - Juffali v Juffali [2016] EWHC 1684 (Fam) - in which Roberts J considered the relevance of a 'stratospheric', 'unimaginably high' marital standard of living to a Pt III MFPA 1984 claim by the wife, distilling the current jurisprudence on Pt III claims, and providing guidance on 'needs' claims in 'big money'cases, has now been published on the site, prefaced by a comprehensive summary by Gwyn Evans of Tanfield Chambers. It is here.
