83 year old John Hart has been sentenced to 14 months in prison after being held in contempt of Court for non-compliance with a Financial Order. 

The Order contained provision for shares in company to be transferred to his ex-wife and Mr Hart continued to make every effort to avoid compliance with the Order. 

This is a stark warning to those who do not comply with Orders of the Court or the requirements for full financial disclosure. The Court can impose heavy sanctions upon the offending party, one of which can be imprisonment. 

If you have any queries over your obligations or are having difficulties in implementing any Financial Order made in divorce, please get in touch.
