We need to sort out our finances upon divorce, how does this work?

News article published on: 24th June 2014

The law on financial separation can be complex and dependent on a number of factors. If you are trying to arrange a financial separation on divorce then the Matrimonial Causes Act sets out a number of factors which should be considered in the separation, including needs, contributions, the length of the marriage and the standard of living during the marriage. If possible, you should try to agree matters with your former spouse, possibly through mediation, as this is usually a much cheaper and less contentious way to deal with matters.

Our divorce lawyers can help you with what can become a complex process. If you were not married then the financial separation can be subject to a number of different rules, depending on whether or not there are any children and the legal ownership of property amongst other things. Our specialist family department has significant experience in resolving any such disputes.
