An NHS hospital doctor who said divorce judges condemned him to working the equivalent of seven full days a week so he can meet maintenance payments to his ex-wife, has told the Appeal Court he was treated unfairly.
Dr Tattersall claimed divorce judges were "wrong to expect him to work more than a normal 40-hour week" and has now told London's Appeal Court he feels he has been the victim of "unfair" treatment.
This case is all to do with earning capacity and it is a really important issue in any divorce case where there might be ongoing maintenance payments. If you would like advise about this please do call the team on 01865 781181.
Dr Tattersall now faces an anxious wait whilst his case is decided after Lady Justice King reserved her decision following an hour-long hearing. The judge will give her ruling on his case at a later date, yet to be set.
