Divorce is very emotional and it is often hard to separate that emotion from rational thought. At all times it is always best to try and avoid making any, potentially life changing, financial decisions in the heat of the moment. How the matrimonial assets are divided or what percentage is agreed upon can have a direct impact on your financial stability which, in turn, could affect the rest of your life. So take a minute to let rational thought rule your head rather than letting emotions lead the way.
It is always hard to come to terms with the breakdown of a marriage, and there will be a whole range of emotions in play. It is common to see many people wishing for this ‘to just be over’, or ‘that it is their fault so they will let him/her have the house’. These are very common thoughts and are often the most dangerous. These decisions are not made with any rational aforethought – they are emotion led which, in the Family Court arena, is not the way to deal with a financial division.
At Vines Legal, we would suggest that you think about things properly before making any final decisions and it is important to discuss your options through with a trained and qualified professional in the first instance. Everyone needs time to adjust to the shock, change or stress of a separation and obtaining proper advice, as opposed to what you hear from friends, neighbours, locals in the pub etc.., is the first step to making a sensible, fair and reasonable decision.
If you are currently thinking of separating or you are in the process of issuing a Divorce Petition, Vines Legal can help to make the process just that bit easier for you.
