In her judgment, Dame Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, President of the Family Division, provides guidance to family law practitioners and their clients on their obligations under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 in ancillary relief proceedings if a spouse is suspected of having previously engaged in tax evasion, however small the amount evaded.
