You could say it was the ugliest divorce case in the history of law!

But when husband Jian Feng saw his baby girl for the first time, he said he was ‘horrified!’

The child was so ugly that he refused to believe he and his beautiful wife could have produced such a child and then accused his wife of having an affair. Following this, his stunning wife informed him that she had gone through extensive plastic surgery costing £62,000 prior to meeting her husband.

Furious Feng then took his wife to Court claiming he had been ‘tricked’ into the marriage and won!

He was awarded £75,000 after his wife admitted she had withheld this information. A judge in northern China said he had been tricked into the marriage and granted the divorce under ‘false premises.’ Article taken from The Sunday People, Nov 4th 2012

Paul Ireland, Head of the Abacus Family Law Department says,

“In England and Wales, there is one ground for a divorce and that is your marriage has broken down irretrievably. However it is necessary to establish one or more of 5 facts in support of any petition for divorce.”

The 5 Facts

  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable Behaviour
  • 2 year separation with consent
  • Desertion
  • 5 year separation
