Firstly, don’t panic! You will have received a copy of the divorce application and instructions to register with the Court online portal so that you can respond to the divorce application which has to be completed within a certain period of time. Before completing the response it is important that you obtain legal advice and understand what the next steps in the divorce will be.

You may have taken the decision not to divorce based on religious or cultural reasons.  If so, you can apply for a Judicial Separation through a procedure similar to a divorce.

You will still also be able to request the Court to approve a financial settlement that you may reach with your spouse.

If you own the family home together with your spouse or partner you cannot stop them from entering the property except by getting a court order. The locks on the property should not be changed and if they are, you must provide them with a key. However, if you are being subjected to violent or aggressive behaviour from your partner or spouse you may be in a position to apply to the Court for an Order to remove them from the property.

This is unlikely to have an impact on financial issues, however it is important that you seek legal advice before taking such steps.  By moving out of the property you may no longer have access to your personal belongings e.g.  important financial documents and there may be a risk that your spouse may not cooperate which will prolong the divorce.

Protect your assets in divorce with our separation lawyers in Earlsfield, SW18

A financial settlement in a divorce involves dividing assets, debts, and financial responsibilities between the divorcing parties. It is a crucial part of the divorce process, determining how both parties will manage financially after the marriage ends.

This division encompasses various financial elements, such as property, savings, pensions, and debt, as well as considerations for ongoing financial support like spousal maintenance. A financial settlement aims not merely to split assets but to do so equitably, ensuring the future financial stability of both individuals.

'Fair' distribution does not necessarily mean a 50/50 split. Instead, the settlement seeks a fair division based on factors such as each party's needs, the duration of the marriage, and the contributions made by each partner.

Achieving a financial settlement requires a thorough understanding of the legal framework and a detailed assessment of the couple's financial situation. This includes identifying and valuing all assets, from tangible ones like homes and vehicles to intangible ones like investments and pensions. It is about evaluating current assets and considering future needs and obligations.

    Earlsfield no-fault divorce solicitors  

    No-fault divorce eliminates the 'blame game,' removing the requirement for one spouse to be held responsible for the marriage's breakdown during divorce proceedings. Our expert no-fault divorce solicitors can help you navigate the new regulations and assist with decisions regarding finances and children.

    The rules introduced by the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 aim to simplify the divorce process. However, that does not mean navigating without expert assistance will be easy or advisable. It is crucial to complete every stage correctly and promptly to avoid unnecessary delays, especially given the new minimum six-month timeline for obtaining a divorce.

    While the divorce process may be more straightforward, separating finances and making arrangements for children remains unchanged and is often the most complex aspect of a divorce. These decisions can have long-term implications for you and your loved ones. Therefore, obtaining the right legal advice and support is essential to ensure a smooth and fair resolution.
