Cui Ante Divortium Law and Legal Definition

Cui ante divortium is a Latin term meaning, “to whom before divorce”. It is a writ of entry enabling a divorced woman to recover property that she had held in fee but that her husband had sold without her permission during the marriage.

Cui ante divortium also means “whom she, before the divorce between them, could not gainsay”. However, this writ was abolished in 1833.
