Billionaire divorce case in the news - does it apply to you?

Wednesday 22nd December 2021

“It’s described as the biggest divorce case in British legal history – a settlement of more than £500m involving the billionaire ruler of Dubai and his estranged wife” according to the BBC.

Whilst this is another story of Billionaire Divorces involving the distribution of significant assets for a spouse and children, which makes headline news, it also shows that the UK Family Courts and laws have to deal with a wide variety of matters and complexities.

Do I need a financial order if I’m separating?

You do not have to be wealthy or have assets to be able to seek a Financial Order through the Family Courts within Divorce/Dissolution proceedings, but it is advisable to ensure you know what the Courts can Order and how best to resolve financial matters when separating, in order to give certainty and closure for the future.
