How To Deal with Assets and Finances in Divorce

Going through a divorce is hard enough without worrying about how to deal with assets and finances in divorce. Nevertheless, it’s essential that you and your ex-spouse deal with your financial issues following a divorce.

Reaching a divorce settlement and making it legally binding through a financial order is the only for you both to move on with your life and prevent the possibility of financial claims being made by either party sometime in the future.

The court has a wide-ranging discretion in deciding who gets what and there is no divorce settlement calculator to work out what a fair financial settlement is because each set of family circumstances is different.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What does the law say about dividing gifts in a divorce?

    The answer is very little. There is a range of factors that need to be taken into consideration before being able to know how they will be treated.

    We have written about how gifts are treated in a divorce in more detail to help you understand what the status of any gifts may be in relation to splitting assets.

    What happens to inherited assets?

    Inherited assets are another interesting topic when it comes to divorce, and similar to gifts there are numerous factors involved that will determine how these assets will be judged.

    Generally speaking, any inherited assets accrued before marriage will be judged differently from all other assets, such as property or pensions. This is of course unless these assets have become mixed into normal family life over a long marriage.

    There are different rules in England and Wales compared with Scotland so it’s important you understand the law in each jurisdiction.

    What is a husband or wife entitled to in a divorce?

    Divorce entitlement depends on your individual circumstances; no couple will have the same marriage or financial circumstances as another.

    The court will always put the needs of any children first. After this factors such as length of the marriage, role within the marriage, financial needs and more will be taken into consideration.

    It can be hard to know what you are entitled to within a divorce settlement, but by following the guidance on fairness most couples can agree to a financial settlement without going to court.
