How are finances divided upon divorce?

There are various ways of resolving financial matters during the divorce process, but ultimately it depends on whether you and your partner can reach an agreement through mediation or collaborative law.

These options are known as ‘alternative dispute resolution’ and allow both parties to save costs associated with attending court while retaining autonomy on the decisions that will ultimately determine their future.
If it is not possible for you and your partner to reach an agreement outside of court, both your financial positions will be assessed and a financial settlement decided by a judge. The judge will weigh out the needs of both sides, carefully assessing:

  • The income and earning capacity of both parties
  • The age of both parties
  • The duration of the marriage
  • The standard of living enjoyed by the family before the breakdown of the marriage
  • The physical and mental capacity of both parties

If court proceedings become inevitable, rest assured that our divorce and separation solicitors will be at hand for practical advice, robust representation and legal support at each stage.
