YM v NM [2020] featured in Family Law

We are delighted to announce that Family Law has featured the judgment in the case YM v NM [2020] EWFC 13 on which a team from Family Law in Partnership advised.

The case referred to as YM v NM [2020] EWFC 13 provides the test for Maintenance Pending Suit applications made before the determination of a set aside application of a (clean break) consent order.

The Judge held that the Court should be slow to grant interim relief where the ultimate entitlement to such relief remains in dispute. The Court must be satisfied that the applicant is likely to succeed in the set aside application. The case also reaffirmed the test for applying for a freezing injunction.

The Family Law in Partnership team advising on the case was led by director Bradley Williams, consultant Gillian Bishop and included associate Grace Lawrence.
