It is important to note that the act of divorce itself does finalise the financial relationship between you and your partner.
To separate your finances, you must reach a financial settlement which is a legally binding decision on how assets and wealth will be split after the marriage has ended.
Arrangements for children will need to be made if required and these are also dealt with separately to the divorce.
It is always preferable for the parties to remain as amicable as possible to ensure that the divorce proceeds without delay or complication.
The cost of a divorce depends on how complicated matters are and if your ex-partner and you agree on various issues.
The longer a divorce process continues, the more costly it will be and in cases where there are financial and/or child arrangements to work out, our costs will vary depending on the complexity of the issues and if additional court proceedings are required.
