STEP: Couple committing ‘financial suicide’ by prolonging divorce

By Spear's

A senior family court judge has warned an international couple against dissipating their assets in legal costs, at a hearing in which the wife sought to have the divorce settlement decided under English law.

The couple met and married in Singapore in 2009. They resided there until August 2012 when the wife, Charoo Sekhri, who holds a senior medical post at a London hospital, unlawfully took their son to London and petitioned for a divorce there.

Her husband, Aloke Ray, a partner in the US-based global law firm White & Case, denied that either of them were domiciled in England & Wales at the date of the petition.
