The breakdown of human relationships can cause great stress, anxiety and problems. The process of separation and divorce is rarely easy.
Our aim is always to attempt to deal with divorce as painlessly as we can. While this cannot always be achieved – much depends on an individual client’s own requirements and the way in which the other party to the case proceeds – we will always attempt to seek such a course for you. We will look to solutions to solve any problems between the parties and not to add to the antagonism.
The court has wide powers to decide whether or not a party to a divorce should provide for the other party following the divorce and to decide how the property of the parties should be distributed.
Orders which can be made include the following:-
When deciding whether or not to make an order in relation to the financial aspects of the divorce, a court will take into consideration:-
The court will not look at whether any party was by his or her conduct responsible for the breakdown unless such conduct was such that it would be inequitable to disregard it. In practice, this means that a court will only look at a party’s behaviour as relevant to the financial settlement if that behaviour was outrageous. In the words of one court, it would take the party’s conduct into consideration only if it would be “repugnant to normal sense of justice to ignore that conduct”.
