News 21st November 2023

This article, published on the Financial Remedies Journal blog, is a practical guide to the legal consequences of a second (/third/fourth/fifth, etc) marriage, to assist when advising clients how to avoid falling into the ‘elephant trap’ of premature remarriage – a term coined by the late Singer J. It can be a messy topic, and it is surprisingly common to avoid finalising financial arrangements after the demise of a marriage. The importance of giving accurate advice to clients, particularly those keen to remarry, is obvious.
