This case concerns a wife who spent 2 years following her divorce making repeated applications against her former husband.

Mrs Welch, described as "vengeful, obsessive, irrational and unjustified", insisted her former husband had failed to provide full disclosure to the Court despite evidence to the contrary.

Whilst Courts are often reluctant to impose sanctions against litigants in person this case provoked and in my view warranted the need for the extended civil restraint order.
