Re Ruiz (A Bankrupt); Mekarska v (1) Ruiz (2) Boyden [2011] EWHC 913 (Fam), [2011] BPIR 1139, (Peter Jackson J, 9 May 2011)

H and W were in the throes of a divorce and ancillary relief. H presented his own bankruptcy petition, and an order was made on it without notice to W. W found out about the bankruptcy petition some months later.

W appealed, and applied to annul the bankruptcy order 18 months after it had been made.
