ANCILLARY RELIEF: Q v Q (Ancillary relief: Periodical Payments) [2005] EWHC 402 (Fam)

18 MAR 2005

(18 March 2005; Bennett J; Family Division) [2005] 2 FLR 640

Making a periodical payments order of 40% of the husband's income, for an extendable term of 4 years, the judge noted that the accumulated fruits of past shared endeavours had been determined in the division of capital. The periodical payments order was designed to provide a step, or bridge, to the anticipated clean break. It was not right in this case to make the husband bear the burden of effectively maintaining the wife for their joint lives; the 4 year periodical payments order and the capital division together should leave the wife with assets, including the home, of over 2.5 million, which was a fair and just result.
