The long awaited judgment in Radmacher v Granatino has been handed down by the Supreme Court. 8 of 9 of the panel of Judges held that the pre-nup should be enforced. Only Lady Hale dissented, unhappy with the idea of putting a gloss on s25 MCA 1973 and of the court making law where that is more properly the role of Parliament.

You can find the judgment here, and FLW commentary here.

I would just like to say I really enjoyed your blog post.

A friend of mine reccomended this to me a week ago. I work for a law firm called Pannone and it's very nice to read about people's opinions and views on family law!

I will continue to look out for you new blog updates!
