A German woman has been granted a divorce after bringing matrimonial proceedings to England after discovering her husband was having an affair.
Catja Thum issued a divorce petition in England even though Oliver Thum had started separate proceedings in Germany.
The couple, both in their 40s, were at the Court of Appeal in May this year.
Judges ruled in favour of Mrs Thum and the divorce was granted at the Central Family Court in High Holborn London.
Court documents cited Mr Thum’s “unreasonable behaviour” as the reason for the divorce and described the marriage as having “broken down irretrievably.”
A decree nisi was formally granted by District Judge Yvonne Gibson in a hearing that lasted less than a minute.
