Another case has hit the headlines recently where a couple have spent an eye-watering £500,000 on legal fees.
Mr Justice Jackson described the father a "failure" for not having paid his ex-wife maintenance, despite enjoying a lavish lifestyle in Dubai.
A wealthy 'wheeler-dealer' father was branded 'a failure' by a judge after he failed to pay his ex-wife their £80,000 annual maintenance in a custody row that was 'making their children miserable'. The property and finance mogul spent ten nights at the five star Park Lane hotel with the mistress he met in Las Vegas, while failing to pay his two children's school fees and giving his wife barely any money. Now, a High Court judge has criticised both of the parents embroiled in the bitter divorce row, describing the 'level of conflict' between them as 'shameful'.
