M v W

Divorce – Appeal. The wife obtained leave to bring financial provision proceedings under the Family Proceedings Act 1984 despite the fact that she and her husband had concluded an agreement in New Zealand in 'full and final settlement' of the parties' financial issues. The husband applied to strike out the leave granted. The Family Division held that it had jurisdiction to hear the wife's application but that leave should not be granted because of the existence of the New Zealand agreement.
