Weekly Snapshot Issue No: 14 – 1 February 2019

Case we are discussing….

In the Marriage of Pierce [1998]the Husband appealed against property orders aguring that he ought to have received greater recognition for his initial financial contribution at the time of the commencement of the relationship, being his assets substantially received from compensation from an accident. He sought 70% of the current assets. 

The Appeal was allowed and the husband was given 75% of the asset pool. 

The court stated that although the concept of ‘erosion’ applies to initial contributions made, this case related to what weight was to be attached in all the circumstaces, to the Husband’s initial financial contributions. But for his greater initial financial contribution, the parties would not have been able to acquire the matrimonial home.
