Differences between divorce and separation

What is the difference between a Separation Agreement and a Financial Order?

To answer this question, it is important to understand the difference between a separation and a divorce.

Divorce is only available for married couples and is the only way to formally end a marriage. Separation is an option for married couples that choose separate without divorcing and is also available to couples that are not married but that decide that they no longer wish to be together. A separation does not end a marriage and therefore does not end the financial claims that each spouse may have regarding the other’s finances.

Pensions and divorce

Pensions on divorce – do I need a report?

Pensions are a common issue that can come up when trying to resolve matrimonial finances on divorce. Often people want to split their pensions equally or they want to offset one spouse’s claim on the other’s pension by giving them a higher share of a different matrimonial asset such as savings or equity in a property.

Will Writing Solicitor Fleet and Guildford

What happens if someone dies without a Will?

My partner has died without a Will. We were due to get married later in the year. Am I entitled to receive anything from his estate?

When someone dies without a Will, their estate will pass in accordance with the rules of intestacy which may not be what they would have wanted. Unfortunately, the rules of insectary do not provide for a partner unless you were married and therefore you will not inherit any of your partner’s assets. This includes your partner’s personal possessions.
