Most people have no first-hand experience of marital breakdown.
The emotional impact can be overwhelming. You may be navigating your way through feelings of fear, anger, or devastation, and it may be difficult to try to deal with all the practical issues at such a time.
Whilst the emotional support of friends and family can be invaluable, advice as to the legal process from those who have been through divorce might not be so helpful. You may have read in the newspapers that the Court will add everything up and divide by two, but the reality is there is no “formula”, because everyone’s circumstances are different.
If you’ve never been through it before, you’ll have lots of questions.
- What if I don’t want to get divorced?
- Does it matter whose fault it is?
- Am I going to lose my home?
- What about the children and their education?
- Will I be able to manage financially?
- Will the business be ruined?
- How long will any financial support last?
- What about my inheritance?
- Does everything get shared equally?
- Will I lose my privacy?
- What’s the process?
- What are my options?
Advice and answers to questions like these will give you an understanding of what can and can’t be achieved. Being in an informed position will allow you to decide what it is that you want to do.
