Baroness Deech is backing calls from top lawyers and the Law Commission for reforms that would end "disproportionate" awards to some former spouses in divorce and make prenuptial contracts binding. Maintenance awards should be limited to five years unless there was exceptional hardship, she said. Lady Deech’s call comes as Baroness Shackleton of Belgravia, the leading divorce solicitor, said that guidance was needed to bring consistency to maintenance awards to prevent a "postcode lottery". The Times’ Frances Gibb looks at the case of Graham Mills who is fighting against a ruling that he must continue paying his ex-wife maintenance despite her blowing a £500,000 between 2002 and 2009.
