Divorce & Dissolution

The decision to marry or enter into a civil partnership is often well considered with many aiming for this to be a lifelong commitment. Consequently, people do not plan for the breakdown of such relationships and are not prepared to handle the difficulties posed by legal processes involved in resolving the issues. Unfortunately, the breakdown of relationships can be irretrievable and such matters are often described as one of the most difficult times individuals can face in their lifetime.

Financial Settlements – What the Courts consider on divorce

One of the more emotive issues that usually arises from a divorce is how to apportion money and assets between the two separating spouses. It’s most likely one of the first questions a person will ask when getting divorced will be ‘who gets what?’. Sometimes a couple can come to an agreement between themselves but there are those who turn to the Court to make the decision for them about how to split their property. Of course, this doesn’t just relate to money, it incorporates everything a couple owns from houses & savings to cars & jewellery, nothing is outside the remit of the Court.
