The court has a duty to be fair to both parties so they will also need to consider a number of factors, including the welfare of any children under the age of 18 and all the circumstances of your case.
Where possible we encourage you to resolve financial issues amicably without going to court. This is quicker, less stressful and will incur lower legal costs. When you have reached an agreement, we will prepare a Consent Order to make it legally binding.
You can still come to a voluntary agreement even after court proceedings have started.
