Two women who say their ex-husbands misled the court on how much money they were worth have won the right to challenge their original divorce settlements.

The Supreme Court, Britain’s top court, said Alison Sharland, 48, from Wilmslow, Cheshire, and Varsha Gohil, 50, from north London, should have their claims reassessed.

Their ex-husbands had argued against the move.

The women had reached agreements with their ex-husbands after beginning litigation, but both later thought the men had misled them.

Potentially this decision could open up the floodgates, for divorced parties to challenge previous divorce settlements.
