Another week, another football stadium! This time, it's not Wembley but the Reebok Stadium: the home of Bolton Wanderers football team. It is also the venue for the Bolton Law Society Family Law Conference, which I chaired yesterday.
The case of Kernott v Jones is being hailed by some family lawyers as, potentially, the “new White”: a reference to the ground breaking case of White v White, heard by the House of Lords in 2000.
