Areas of Law / Divorce and Family

My wife left me recently. Before she went I volunteered for redundancy, and am due to receive a lump sum and weekly pension soon. Will she have any claim on these, and how will the rest of our assets be divided up?

Everything you and your wife own, or are likely to own in the foreseeable future, is taken into account together with your respective incomes. If you cannot reach agreement about how your assets should be divided, the court has power to order the transfer of assets from one spouse to the other and the sharing of pensions. The court strives to impose a fair settlement having regard to a list of factors relating to your past contributions, current situation and future needs. You should see a solicitor who is a member of Resolution for detailed advice.
