Start time: 16.30

Topic: Is my Marriage a Marriage?  Marital status, Recognition of Foreign Divorce and Part III Claims

The law of marriage in England & Wales: what does it mean to say a marriage is valid, void, voidable, or a ‘non-marriage’?

      • How do the English courts approach foreign marriages which often would not be ‘valid’ if they had taken place in England
      • When does the English court recognise a foreign divorce (essential for there to be jurisdiction to make an application under Part III for financial relief)?
      • Some thoughts on applications under Part III of the Matrimonial and Family Proceedings Act 1984.
