“Hogan Orders”: Interim property settlement for litigation funding Justin Thomas

Commonly, one party to a marriage will need to apply for, or respond to an application for financial/property settlement Orders, but are without the ability to meet the costs associated with the litigation. The Family Law Act empowers the court to make Orders to assist impecunious parties to meet those costs from the “pool” of property that is the subject of the litigation. Such orders have come to be known amongst legal practitioners as “Hogan Orders”, following the decision in the Marriage of Hogan (1986) 10 Fam LR 681. The principles to be applied when applying for Orders of this kind are revealed by a consideration of the some of the noteworthy decisions of the court since that time.
