*Goyal v Goyal

Divorce – Financial provision. The Family Court held that a pension sharing order, under s 24B of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973, was not available in relation to a foreign pension. That ruling followed a decision by the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, setting aside an earlier injunctive order which had required the husband to transfer his interest in an Indian pension fund to his wife, and ordering a rehearing of the wife's claims for a pension sharing order. The Family Court further held that the wife had not provided any evidence that a pension sharing order would be likely to be enforced in India and, accordingly, her application failed in limine.
