Are you planning ahead to protect your assets?

Relationships can make or break a family home. Some can be loving and responsive in hard times but others that have been good for years can slowly begin to crumble. When a relationship ends, the survival of the family environment can be threatened.

A fact of life is that relationships do break down. It’s still seen as a dirty word to suggest things might go wrong with a relationship but it’s important to take the sensible approach. You would protect yourself in many other areas of life so why not protect your interests with a divorce and better still, do it with your partner in agreement with an amicable solution.

The first step with a divorce should be to sit down with your partner, put your differences aside and organise your affairs with a plan of how to divide your assets. This can be done with your local Divorce Negotiator too. A sensible approach is to work out what is fair and reasonable, which will save you any conflict later. Any wealth generated during the marriage should be shared with your spouse.

Nowadays separating couples tend to be switched on to the idea of sorting out their finances together during divorce. They are also aware of the psychological consequences of their relationship ending. Where there are children, they are engaged with how they will resolve matters like childcare and support.
