Divorce row wives Alison Sharland and Varsha Gohil win Supreme Court victory


Two ex-wives who say they should get more money after divorcing have won a Supreme Court victory.

Alison Sharland, 48, from Wilmslow, Cheshire, and Varsha Gohil, 50, from north London, both said their ex-husbands misled judges about how much they were worth.

Both want their claims re-analysed at fresh hearings. Their ex-husbands disagree.

Supreme Court justices, who analysed the disputes at a hearing in London in June, have now ruled in favour of the women.

Lawyers say the cases raise questions of general public importance.
