An interesting case where a wife tried to sue her lawyers for not advising her that divorce proceedings would end her marriage.
As she was a Roman Catholic, the wife tried to argue her lawyers should have advised her to go down the judicial separation route instead...
When advising my clients of their options to formalise their separation, I always make sure they understand the implications.
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.
