*Cooper-Hohn v Hohn

Divorce – Costs. Following the divorce of a very wealthy couple, the wife petitioned for financial remedy orders. The husband sought a departure from equality in terms of the share of the wealth that the wife should receive at the end of the marriage, due to the alleged fact that a lot of the personal wealth represented post-separation accrual. The Family Division held that the husband had indeed been personally responsible for a lot of post-separation accrual of wealth and the award was to reflect that fact.
