Finance and Property on Divorce

  • Kate Standley
Part of the Macmillan Professional Masters book series (PPML)


In this chapter we consider how the financial and property resources belonging to the parties to a marriage are distributed on divorce. Compared with obtaining a divorce (see Chapter 7), finance and property on divorce is a lengthy topic with a considerable body of case-law, because this is where the litigation occurs on divorce. Children on divorce are considered in Chapter 10, which deals with residence and contact arrangements. Chapter 11 deals with financial support for children both on divorce and at other times.
