Applying for Financial Orders
At the end of your divorce or civil partnership, you and your ex-partner need to decide how to divide financial assets. It often leads to financial disputes concerning property ownership, investments, savings, current earnings, pensions, and offshore accounts.
If you disagree on how to split assets, consult a family lawyer. If you do not reach an out-of-court settlement, you can apply for a financial order.
When to Consider a Financial Order?
If you cannot mutually agree upon the division of assets, you may seek legal consultation.
Your options include:
- Solicitor Negotiation
- Court order
In financial disputes, going to the Court is considered the last resort. Here the Judge helps you arrange a settlement. If you still have trouble agreeing to a deal, a Judge will decide how your matrimonial assets will be divided, and then a Financial Court Order will be made.
Factors considered by the Court
The court will decide upon the division of assets, considering:
- The needs of the children of the family.
- The financial assets and property owned by each party.
- The needs of the parties.
- Income and earning capacity of the parties.
- The age of the parties and the length of the marriage or civil partnership.
- Financial contributions of the parties
