Divorce ruling: Alison Sharland and Varsha Gohil win appeal

October 15th, 2015 in General

Two women who say they were misled by their ex-husbands and should get more money in their divorce settlements have won their Supreme Court fight.

Alison Sharland, who accepted £10m in her divorce, and Varsha Gohil, who got £270,000, say the men hid the extent of their wealth when the deals were made.

The court indicated that both claims would return to the High Court.
