Rattan v Kuwad [2021] EWCA Civ 1


This case of Rattan v Kuwad [2021] EWCA Civ 1 is the first Court of Appeal review of maintenance pending suit in over a decade (see Moore v Moore (2009) EWCA Civ 1427), albeit the decision serves to re-emphasise what hopefully all family law practitioners will already know – a knowledge which appears to have been lost to the Circuit Judge (“CJ”) involved and a good example why the FRC is a welcome replacement of the old judicial ticketed system when dealing with appeals from financial remedy first instance decisions.
