- What did the court decide?
Family analysis: Mr Justice Mostyn considered a former wife’s application under Part III of the Matrimonial and Family Proceedings Act 1984 (MFPA 1984) against her former husband, who had died before the application could be adjudicated. Under consideration were whether the authorities in relation to applications under Part II of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 (MCA 1973), as well as those under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 (I(PFD)A 1975), were binding in relation to MFPA 1984, Pt III claims. Sophie Groves, director, and Valeria Gampl, assistant solicitor, at Vardags consider the issues.
