Hart v Hart

Practice – Family proceedings. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed a husband's application for permission to appeal against an ancillary relief order. Among other things, the President of the Family Division made clear that matters of relationships between former spouses and new partners were quintessentially matters of fact where the trial judge had to have regard to the totality of the evidence, including the nuance of that evidence, before coming to a conclusion as to whether the prospects of remarriage, or indeed the future prospects of the relationship, should or should not, and if they should to what extent they should, be taken into account.
