Family Law Hub

Martin v Martin [2018] EWCA Civ 2866

Wife appealed and husband cross-appealed against a financial remedy order where the issues of principle raised related to the manner in which the court applied the sharing principle. They can be summarised as follows: (a) What approach should the court take to the valuation of shares in a private company when determining how to divide the marital wealth; and (b) What approach should the court take when determining what part of the parties' current wealth is properly to be defined as non-marital in circumstances where that wealth includes shares in a private company which was founded by a spouse prior to the date when the parties married or started living together.
