Finances in Divorce or Separation
What do I need to know about financial settlement arising from divorce or separation?
If you happen to be going through a divorce or separation, often the most difficult issue to resolve is how the parties are going to reach a financial settlement. How are the assets going to be divided? Is there a need for one member of the divorcing or separating couple to support the other with maintenance payments? Difficulties can arise, particularly in more complex cases, for example, whether the assets constitute “matrimonial” or “non-matrimonial” in law. There may be tax or trust implications to consider.
There is no one way, or set formula, for dividing the assets or agreeing a settlement. Each case will depend on the couple’s particular circumstances.
Mostly, questions over financial settlement will be decided amicably, but there may be need for expert legal guidance to underpin any settlement on a sound legal foundation. If the parties still can’t agree on a financial settlement, there will be a need to go to Court and get the Court to decide. myBarrister can put you in direct contact with a barrister who is an expert in family law and, in particular, in financial matters arising from divorce or separation.
