I asked divorce lawyer, Shamin Ali to comment on this latest news about former footballer, Ryan Giggs and how he is disputing claims by his estranged wife in their divorce battle:

"Under Section 25 of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 the courts will have to consider the contribution each of the parties have made or is likely to make in the foreseeable future.

Special contributions is one of the categories considered . In this case the courts will have to determine firstly whether there was a special contribution made by the husband and secondly the extent to which this should affect the wife’s award. 

An interesting one to follow."
