After hearing that, here are a list of tips to get the best divorce settlement:

Here are things you need to have into account:

 

Also, bear in mind that if you’re trying to get the family home think first! Make sure you can afford it post-divorce because if you can’t there will be huge financial consequences. Downsizing is a good option and then taking a share of your partner’s pension – especially If they are the higher earner.

Next tip, don’t take everything g they say as face value. Both parties have to declare the values of their assets. However, this can be hard to calculate, and there are always ways of hiding their true value. You should get a financial adviser to look over the statistics for you.

And finally, cut your joint debit and credit cards immediately The debt will be shared and the value of it will affect your credit file. So as soon as your divorce is initiated, cut all ties!
