How Does A Spouse’s Death Impact Divorce Proceedings?


We are pleased to see FLiP Director James Pirrie’s article “The order of things: reflections on Unger v Ul-Hasan [2023]” featured in issue 225 of Resolution’s The Review, which can be found here, dealing with this very question. James’ article covers how to prepare for the potential death of a party in divorce proceedings and how the Supreme Court’s decision in Unger v Ul-Hasan [2023] may help.

James first wrote on this subject when the Unger v Ul-Hasan judgment first came out. This shorter piece, found here, provides a summary of the current law and highlights the changes needed.
