Julia Shillingford appeared in the Supreme Court in the case of Birch v Birch UKSC20015/0230


23rd May 2017 | News


Julia has acted for the Respondent husband in all proceedings since 2010. The case considers what are the correct principles to be applied when varying/setting aside the terms of a final consent order in matrimonial finance proceedings. Should the Court apply s.31 of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973, in this case to an undertaking, or is it constrained by Court of Appeal authority to apply a narrower approach, for example a significant change of circumstances. Julia was led in the Supreme Court by John Wilson QC of 1 Hare Court Chambers.

The judgment can be found here.
