Woman Claims Lawyers Should Have Told Her Divorce Would End Her Marriage

Recommended Posts


A British woman attempted to sue her former lawyers for professional negligence, claiming that, alongside a number of other allegations, they failed to advise that finalising divorce proceedings would inevitably cause her marriage to end.

The curious case - made against two solicitor firms - had already been rejected by the court, but was revealed in the transcript of a later appeal by the claimant against the dismissal of other aspects of her case.

Jane Mulcahy had argued that the lawyers should have made it clear that a divorce would cause her marriage to be terminated - something which she apparently wanted to avoid.

The lawyers failed to regard her Roman Catholic faith and should have recommended judicial separation - a step down from full divorce - as an alternative course of action, she said.

The allegation was revealed in a subsequent appeal court judgment last month, in which Lord Justice Briggs said: “The most striking of Mrs Mulcahy's many allegations of negligence against her solicitors was that, having regard to her Roman Catholic faith, Mrs Boots had failed to give her the advice which was requisite in view of her firmly held belief in the sanctity of marriage…

Genius. :lol::lol:

Derek Acorah didn't know that getting bladdered, and then driving, would be a bad thing, despite being psychic! :blink:

I'd rather be able to sue society for not warning me that marriage ends in divorce and costs men over half their assets they brought in. You need a lawyer to witness a prenup in order to demonstrate both parties understood the implications - why not for getting married?!!>!>!
