It can be an emotional rollercoaster when a marriage breaks down. Who do you turn to? Who actually understands? And importantly, how do you protect what is yours and your future?

The divorce court has the power to make any orders about finances or property. The court will look at every bit of property or capital your own jointly with your spouse or in your own name. This will include your home, your savings, your investments, your employments, your business, your pensions and so on. The court will look at all this information and decide what orders it can make which will be fair to everyone. When making this decision the interests any children of the marriage will be the most important consideration.

So how do you protect what is yours and how do you ensure you will be financially secure in the future?     It is wise to seek professional advice at an early stage.
