Conduct arguments in financial remedy cases

Available from: 20/06/2024

Conduct is a significant issue that can be raised in any financial remedy proceedings. It is crucial to be aware of situations where conduct may be raised and the proper procedure for doing so.

In addition to addressing conduct during the marriage or civil partnership itself, this webinar will explore developments related to conduct arguments in financial remedy cases. This includes instances where the court exercises discretion under section 25 of the MCA 1973, as well as when litigation conduct is brought into consideration.

While costs orders are not as common in family cases as in other legal areas, when conduct issues are raised, it could directly impact the principles outlined in Part 28 of the FPR 2010.

This webinar will cover the following:

  • How do material non-disclosure and conduct issues affect the outcome?
  • Growing case law surrounding material non-disclosure
  • Litigation conduct and its application to Part 28 FPR 2010
  • Economic abuse, conduct and financial remedy matters – consideration of DP v EP [202] EWFC 6
  • Manipulating documents and adjourning of capital claims due to conduct – consideration of X v Y [2022] EWFCC 95
  • Pleading conduct in financial remedy cases – consideration of the principles set out within Tsyetkoy v Khayrova [2023] EWFC 230 and Tsyetkoy v Khayrova [2023] EWFC 131
  • Continuing developments in conduct issues – consideration of O v O [2023] EWFC 161
