Assoun v Assoun [2013] EWCA Civ 1457 (16 October 2013)

Financial provision case where the H was arguing against a ruling that he was in a prosperous position and therefore could afford to pay for his W's legal costs as well as his own. H complained that the judge had failed to look into the means of the W, because H said that she did have available money to obtain legal services for the purposes of the proceedings, whilst he did not. The H's application for permission to appeal was refused but the judge said 'woe betide his wife if it turns out that the basis on which she obtained this substantial order turns out to be false'.
