Can I get divorced in the UK, even though I was married abroad?

One of the biggest misconceptions when it comes to divorce law is that people believe you need to go back to the country in which you were married to get a divorce. UK law provides that if just one of the divorcees is living in the UK at the time you decide your marriage is over and you want to get a divorce, you can do so.

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.

The season of goodwill

The festive period is for many families the highlight of the year. Visits to relatives, Christmas presents and seasonal parties. Whilst the traditional Christmas is the aim for many, this time of year ushers in the family dispute season, culminating with “Black Monday” being the first Monday after New Year when traditionally more than half the people who plan to divorce will start the process by consulting lawyers.
