Everyone hears a story that the man always gets less of the financial settlement, however this is not the case as it depends on the detailed information provided. i.e. the settlement is not just based on the value of the house but includes other assets such as individual pensions, inheritances etc and all of it must be taken into account in a settlement as well as support for any children.
It is difficult to judge what the real situation is when you only hear one half of the story and usually it is the emotional bits that are most amplified.
Very often most people head straight to a solicitor’s office to protect their own interests which is when the costs start to rack up and the only losers are the individuals themselves.
