Neil Russell comments on England-Scotland cross-border settlements.
Family Partner Neil Russell comments on a recent case that shines a spotlight on England-Scotland cross-border settlements. The case involves determining whether an aristocrat’s estranged wife should have her maintenance decided in England or Scotland. Discussing the case, Neil says, “Forum shopping is a big business. The case epitomises the real issue of forum shopping when the financial details of the case can be different in two jurisdictions. Scotland has very different rules on maintenance, which is limited.”
