Green v Green: 1981

Section section 37(3) of the 1983 Act was not wide enough in its terms to enable a judge to set aside a disposition granted by someone other than the husband or wife. That was because sub-section 3 only enabled a judge to give directions ‘consequential’ on setting aside a disposition which was reviewable under sub-section 2 and sub-section 2 only applied to dispositions made by one or other of the parties to a marriage.
