Judge in divorce case criticises husband’s ‘mean-spirited’ behaviour

A High Court judge, in granting a woman a decree of divorce, has found her estranged husband has still not fully disclosed his financial position and engaged in “bad” and “mean-spirited” behaviour towards her.

The man had sought to depict himself as a “reasonable” man seeking only what is fair and wishing his estranged wife well, Mr Justice Max Barrett said. However, over a prolonged period, he behaved badly towards her, requiring her, when she has little money, repeatedly to engage lawyers and seek all manner of orders against him, including to pay his share of utility bills, the judge said.

He had behaved in a “volatile” manner, with the result the woman previously obtained an interim barring order against him, later replaced by a related undertaking.

The woman was so fearful she left the family home at one point.

While the man maintained he has never been violent towards

Between home schooling, worries about jobs and families being stuck together 24/7 it’s not surprising that the Citizens Advice Bureau is reporting record numbers of people looking up how to divorce their spouse on the charity’s website.

But even the most pessimistic forecasters might be shocked to learn the extent to which the pandemic has made difference.

For Gloucestershire lawyer Sharon Giles was surprised to find herself four times busier than usual at a time when she thought it would be quiet because unhappy couples would be waiting for the crisis to settle down before filing for divorce..

“I haven’t got any actual figures but I am certainly a lot busier,” said Sharon who is a partner in the divorce and family law team at Willans LLP solicitors in Cheltenham.

“I would say that during the lockdown period my instructions have quadrupled to what they normally are.”

Uzbek domestic abuse victims feel judged, trapped despite new law

TASHKENT (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – A week after they exchanged vows, Nigora’s husband started beating her. Three years after leaving him, she still gets blamed for the break-up – even the Uzbek justice system thinks she should give the marriage another try.

A law passed last year criminalised domestic violence in Uzbekistan, but women’s campaigners say protecting victims could take time in a country where abused women are often urged to stick it out or find a solution within the family.

“Everyone has been judging me. My neighbours and relatives say I made a mistake by leaving. They say the first 10 years of marriage are usually like this and called me impatient,” said Nigora, 28, whose name has been changed to protect her identity.

She went against the advice of relatives and friends and left her husband after 18 months – her dreams of being a

Google ordered to disclose emails in Russia oligarch’s divorce

According to Bloomberg, Tatiana Akhmedova alleges that her former husband transferred assets to their son, Temur, to avoid paying a London court’s divorce judgment that she says remains “almost entirely unsatisfied.”

The London court earlier awarded 450 million pounds ($601 million) to the oligarch’s ex-wife, most of which Tatiana Akhmedova claims remains unpaid due to an alleged fraudulent transfer of assets.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Virginia M. DeMarchi said that she would enforce the London court’s ruling allowing Tatiana Akhmedova to obtain her son’s emails from Google.

The London case was brought to San Jose, where the closest federal court to
