(Court of Appeal; Wilson LJ; 6 March 2008)
The wife was refused permission to appeal on her own grounds, but given permission to amend the grounds of appeal, and permission to appeal on the revised grounds. The judge seemed not to have attempted to calculate the total net assets of parties, or to calculate the effect on the parties of the capital adjustments he proposed to order. It was arguable that if those calculations were done the award to the husband would be seen to be too high, particularly given that much of the wife's wealth had been inherited, and that the court had given no consideration to the question of the wife's liquidity.
