Magiera v Magiera

Divorce – Property. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed part of an appeal, brought by the husband, against a decision that the English courts had jurisdiction under art 22(1) of Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 to entertain his former wife's application under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996, which sought an order for sale of a house they owned. However, the court allowed the husband's appeal against what was, in effect, a charging order in respect of costs, which had been made in W's favour.
