NON-MATRIMONIAL ASSETS: Sharing windfalls

24 February 2012  

Frances Bailey considers the latest case on lottery winnings and the courts’ approach to non-matrimonial assets

In ‘Money Can’t Buy You Love’, FLJ100, October 2010, I lamented the very limited guidance on the treatment of lottery winnings by the courts in domestic case law. Some 12 months later the courts finally had the chance to delve into the issue in the case of S v AG (Financial Remedy: Lottery Prize) [2011]. This article looks at the facts of S v AG, the guidance given as to the treatment of lottery winnings and generally at case law concerning non-matrimonial assets.
