Vaughan v Vaughan - Husband to pay wife lump sum 29 years after divorce - "undue hardship"

David Vaughan QC was recently ordered to pay his ex-wife a lump sum of £215,000 despite the fact that they separated 29 years ago and had no children. The couple were married for 13 years and separated in 1981, finally divorcing in 1985. Since the separation Mr Vaughan paid Mrs Vaughan £636,325 in maintenance payments, being £12,000 per year from 1981 to 1991 and thereafter £27,175 per annum.
