FAMILY JUSTICE COUNCIL PUBLISHES FURTHER GUIDE TO RESOLVING FINANCIAL CLAIMS, FOR THOSE GETTING DIVORCED

July 2016             No: 1

In April 2016 we provided information about a new guide published by the Family Justice Council for people representing themselves in divorce proceedings, called “Sorting out finances on divorce.”

The FJC has now published a further document, which provides detailed guidance on “financial needs” on divorce.  Produced by the Financial Needs Working Group, this second guide concentrates on cases where the assets do not exceed the needs of the parties.

The President of the Family Division has commented that the guide “provides a succinct summary of the law as explained and developed in the leading cases.”  It is 64 pages long and includes a number of case studies of common scenarios.
