Clean break between divorce and money
Sir James Munby, President of the Family Division, wants to cut the Gordian Knot of divorce. By suggesting that proceedings be streamlined, he summarises what is required: ‘formally, legally and procedurally, a complete de-linking – separation – of divorce and money.’
Published under the heading ‘17th View from the President’s Chambers: Divorce and money – where are we and where are we going?’, Munby P’s proactive argument centres on separating the divorce process, which he terms “largely administrative and bureaucratic”, from any settlement over who takes which assets from a marriage.
