Lord Wilson in the Supreme Court has recently clarified that there is no time limit in law for spouses to make a claim for financial provision arising out of Divorce.

Recent case law has been heard whereby the wife has been successful in making an application for financial provision following a Divorce which concluded 20 years earlier. A final settlement has not yet been agreed or Ordered by the Court, however the ex-wife is able to bring the claim due to there not being a time limit on making the financial claim.

This clearly sets out the importance of dealing with finances at the time of the divorce to stop any pending case in the future.
