Divorce is the legal dissolution of your marriage. Once divorced you are no longer legally married to your husband or wife. It’s a big step but one that many others have taken. Certain rights and obligations come to an end but there may be others in place, such as the obligation to pay maintenance.
I am getting re married, how do I protect my assets?
Prenuptial agreements have been recognised as enforceable under British divorce law for the first time following a Supreme Court ruling in October 2010.
In some countries, these agreements are legally binding. However, in England it has traditionally been up to the courts to decide on the fairest way to divide the couple’s wealth.
By ruling that such contracts can be legally binding, subject to the individual terms of the agreement being fair, the Supreme Court has altered the landscape of divorce settlements.
I have had a long marriage but I want to divorce, what will happen to the house and/or pension?
The starting point the Courts will take with regard to the house and/or pension, is a view of equality, however, each case will be determined on its own merits.
