The Pole Dance That Never Ends

The Pole Dance That Never Ends

By Aylward Game - Jan 9, 2014 Family Law

Unfortunately the cloud of uncertainty that has been hanging over Family Lawyers who deal with Prenuptial Binding Financial Agreements continues with the news that the husband in the now infamous case of Wallace & Stelzer, which has become known as the pole dance case, has asked the High Court for permission to appeal the latest decision made by the full bench of the Family Court.

This case is one in which a wealthy business man married a pole dance/dancer who had little or no financial assets and shortly before their marriage they signed a Prenuptial Agreement which provided that if the marriage were to fail within the first four years that the husband would be required to pay to the wife the sum of 3.2 million dollars. The marriage failed after less than two years and the husband has been attempting to overturn the provisions of the Prenuptial Agreement through the Court since that time. The husband’s request for permission to appeal is on the grounds that some of the 2009 amendments to the Family Law Act are not valid.
