TY v XA [2024] EWFC 96

20th May 2024

Moor J. Ripples from the decision in Potanin v Potanina [2024] UKSC 3. Mr Justice Moor reiterated that Potanin had not changed the basic test for the grant of leave to apply for financial relief under Part III, which should from now on be on notice. The test is as set out at section 13 of the 1984 Act. Potanin had stated that applying a test based on ‘compelling reasons’ or ‘knock-out blow’ was wrong.
