It is always advisable to finalise arrangements for money and property at the same time as going through the divorce process. The divorce process itself does not deal with these issues which must be concluded separately.
You can apply for maintenance for yourself, you may want the money to be paid weekly or monthly or you may just want to receive a one-off payment in a lump sum.
If you and your partner do not want to be tied to each other financially in the future you might want a "Clean Break". For this you have to ask the court to settle the financial matters once and for all.
You can also apply for an order that your partner guarantees a certain level of payments to you over a given period of time, known as "Secured Periodical Payments".
We realise that divorce/separation can be a very traumatic and emotional time and therefore aim to provide practical advice and endeavour to guide you through the process in the most simplified manner possible. Our advice will be geared to ensuring that you get the best settlement available so that your future can be financially secure.
