£14,000 Palimony win for Scottish woman

September 6, 2008

A mother in Scotland has been awarded the sum of £14,000 as a Palimony win by the courts, so that her children can attend breakfast club and after school club. This award represents the first time that a woman in Scotland has been awarded such a figure for Palimony, and she is already receiving CSA payments by her 41-year-old ex, who is the father of her two primary school age children.

Non married, co-habiting couples in Scotland were awarded new rights by the 2006 Family Law Act in Scotland. However the money that former co-habiting couples are able to seek are not as much as those who are married, or are in civil partnerships.

The couple had lived together for eight years and have two children, for which the Child Support Agency are of course involved.
