Divorce myths

Divorce myths

People sometimes come to us with preconceived ideas about what they are entitled to when they’ve been married. Each situation is different and the whole divorce and finances are based on an individual’s circumstance.

Some of the top questions we get asked are:

If you are to blame for the marriage break up you will get less share of the assets? Wrong.

You don’t have a right to see your child if you aren’t paying child maintenance? Wrong.

You separated (but not divorced) and having a new relationship but that’s not adultery. Wrong.

My ex doesn’t have rights to assets in my sole name on divorce. Wrong.

If you get a basic divorce with a decree absolute this means my ex has no financial claims against me anymore. Wrong.

We’ve been living together for years. I have as many rights as if we were married. Wrong.

This video explains why these are all myths.
