What is a Barder Event?
A Barder event arises when a court order has been made in financial proceedings and shortly following the final order there is a dramatic change or event which significantly alters the basis upon which the order was made, such that one party may wish to re-visit or appeal the order on the basis of it now being unfair. To satisfy the criteria for a ‘Barder Event’ appeal the following must have occurred;
New events have occurred which invalidate the basis upon which the order was made;
The new events have occurred within a relatively short period of time of the order having been made, that is, no more than a few months; The application for leave to appeal out of time is made reasonably promptly; The interests of third parties should not be prejudiced.
