*R v R

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The issue for determination was whether the judge had been permitted to make an order for the husband's payment of interim maintenance to the wife into an account in Russia when he was subject to sanctions imposed by Council Regulation (EU) 269/2014. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the husband's appeal, held that the order was lawful, since it contained no provisions dealing with funds or economic resources within the scope of the Regulation without the competent authority's licence.
