Re V (European Maintenance Regulation)

Divorce – Financial provision. The Family Division declined to stay or dismiss the wife's application for maintenance, including interim relief, pursuant to s 27 of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973, in circumstances where the husband had, a few months previously, lodged a writ for divorce in Scotland. The Scottish court had not been seised of maintenance at the date upon which the wife had issued her application and the present court had priority.
