England – the world’s “divorce capital”

July 27, 2011 Speech Box

The record for the largest financial payout in a divorce was broken recently when Galina Besharova accepted a settlement offer from her husband thought to be worth up to £220m. The exact terms of the settlement are confidential but it is reported that Galina Besharova actually received less than 50% of the asset pot after an 18 year marriage.

Unsurprisingly she was very happy with the outcome of the case and lauded the English judges for their fair approach. This recent case will give further support to the label that has been attached to England as the world’s “divorce capital”.
