Aburn v Aburn

Divorce – Financial provision. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the appellant husband's appeal in respect of one element of an order, which provided for an automatic increase in the level of periodical payments payable to the respondent wife following the date upon which the youngest child ceased privately funded secondary education. The judge had been wrong as a matter of law, and plainly wrong in the exercise of his discretion, by having made an advance variation order based upon only one known element with respect to the parties' finances, and the needs of the youngest child, some four years hence.
