One aspect of divorce or civil partnership dissolution is that either party can claim against the finances of the other. This can include income, pensions and capital. In many cases agreement can be reached without the need for any court proceedings.
If you can come to an agreement with your soon to be ex-husband or wife, we suggest drawing up a consent order. Once approved by the court, the order will become a legally binding agreement, and means that neither partner can make any further financial claims against the other.

In terms of the court, they will always aim to place both parties in a fair financial position, with the welfare of any children of the family being paramount. It is always advisable to seek legal advice if court proceedings are issued in respect of the financial side of a divorce or civil partnership dissolution as the orders which the court can make are far reaching and will affect the future lives of both parties.
