Re P (Child) (Financial Provision) - Shoeboxes and comical shopping trips - child support from the affluent to fabulously rich [2004] CFLQ 103

The Court of Appeal's first engagement with Schedule 1 to the Children Act 1989 endorses, qualifies and amplifies earlier High Court authority, and suggests a method for applying the statute where the parties are affluent to fabulously rich.
