Evidential requirements must be met when seeking A v A costs allowance (Family Court)

In E v B (Interim Maintenance Inaccurate Time Estimate) [2021] EWFC 90, Recorder Chandler made an interim maintenance order in the wife’s favour but refused her application for an A v A costs allowance in proceedings under Part III of the Matrimonial and Family Proceedings Act 1984 (MFPA 1984). He reminded practitioners making similar interim maintenance and costs allowance applications to provide the court with realistic time estimates, failing which there is a possibility of adjournment and costs sanctions being imposed.
