Ex-wives return to court to ask for divorce settlement to be reviewed

Two divorced women are taking their divorce cases back to court, claiming that in their divorce settlements their former husbands did not disclose their true wealth and that therefore they should have received more.

Alison Harland received £10 million from her ex-husband, believing it was half of what he was worth. She now claims that he was worth many times that amount. Varsha Gohil received £270,000 and a car from her ex-husband in the divorce, who was subsequently convicted of fraud and money laundering up to £37 million.

Each woman is asking the Supreme Court to revisit the original settlements since they allege they have been short changed.

Judgment is expected to be reserved until later this year.
