Professor Norrie's Commentaries on Family Law

Edinburgh University Press

In the House of Lords decision of Miller v Miller, McFarlane v McFarlane [2006] UKHL 24 the English rules on financial provision on divorce were clarified and made, in the judges’ eyes at least, fairer. The Scottish judge in the case, Lord Hope, expressed the view that to achieve a similar fairness in Scotland the Scottish legislation would require amendment. This commentary disagrees with that suggestion.

Keywords:   Financial provision on divorce, Discretion or certainty, Clean-break settlement, Fairness, Economic disadvantages and compensation
