Udeze-Nwannia v Udese-Nwannia [2013] EWCA Civ 725 (26 March 2013)

Application to appeal against a decree of nullity where the H had previously married under a customary ceremony and a church ceremony in Nigeria (a 'double decker' marriage) but where he and his first wife went through only a customary divorce. Held that a valid church marriage could not be dissolved merely by a customary ceremony of divorce and so the H was still married at the time of his second marriage.
