"Maintenance after Foreign Divorce Decree"

PRH Webb, 1970

This article highlights the possibility of keeping a maintenance order alive where the order had been granted during the subsistence of a marriage, which was later dissolved through a foreign divorce decree, recognised in the forum. The author explores the application of this doctrine of “divisible divorce” in English cases, applying the relevant English statutes, and points to possible results in the New Zealand context with regard to comparable New Zealand statutes.
