Abstract

It has been a vibrant few months in family law since my April column.The Court of Session was faced with a fascinating and unusual case in which the pursuer sought reduction of a decree of divorce on the basis that he had earlier divorced the defender, by means of a talaq in Pakistan (Syed, orse Ahmed v Ahmed, 31 March 2004, Lord Menzies). However it is two English cases, which are likely to have effect in Scotland, that I want to consider this month.
