When you issue Divorce Proceedings it does not automatically mean that financial matters are going to be dealt with. Dealing with finances, although it runs along side the divorce, is separate to the Proceedings. There are many options available to separated couples when looking at finances and this article provides a good summary of what is available.
quite often people embarking on divorce, fresh from the painful decision to separate, are surprised to find that obtaining a divorce and resolving a financial agreement are two almost entirely separate things.The divorce ends the marriage and gives the court the ability to make orders recording the financial decisions made for the family's future. This is, in fact, a relatively straightforward process, and more often than not people will spend the majority of their time and energy on working out what the financial arrangements are going to be. The client must come to terms with these two separate processes, and thereafter choose which way they want to approach resolving the financial side of the process.
