It is generally thought that the parties to Family Law Proceedings would be the husband and wife. This is not always the case as there may be circumstances where a “third party” comes into the proceedings by either:
This can occur in circumstances for example where:
Care should be taken to ensure that it is appropriate that the persons or entities being joined to the proceedings as there could be cost consequences of joining someone to proceedings in circumstances where ultimately, the Court determined that they had no need to be joined to the proceedings. In such circumstances where the third party had incurred legal costs and expenses, the party who failed in the claim is likely to be ordered to pay the costs and expenses of the third party from their share of the asset pool.
