The Daily Mail has today published an article by Sadie Nicholas with help from Jill Foster about Divorcees losing their marital homes. Here is the link to the that article.
For some years Divorce Lifeline have known about unfair divorce settlements. The law is very clear in that after a medium or long marriage then the matrimonial assets should be split on at least a 50/50 basis. If the wife has given up her career or not even started one because she is the home maker and a mother then it could be that she might get 60% of the assets. It just depends on the total of the assets and what might happen in the future.
We have seen so many poor settlements in the last 4 years that we despair of how the lawyers can advise a client to accept an arrangement that agrees less than 50% of the assets.
If you think that you have received a bad settlement and lost your home then call us and we will review your deal at no cost. ‘Nothing ventured nothing gained’!
Always remember that any enquiries that we make do not involve your ex husband or wife and are therefore confidential.
