NLW v ARC: FD 13 Jan 2012

The former wife sought leave to appeal against an ancillary relief order made by consent. The husband did not attend.
Held: The new rules intended to align family procedures with the CPR as applies for appeals to the Court of appeal. ‘The test on granting permission to appeal is set out in rule 30.3(7) and is this: permission to appeal may be given only where (a) the court considers the appeal would have a real prospect of success, or (b) there is some other compelling reason why the appeal should be heard.’ It was granted in this case.
