What Is a Wife Entitled to in a Divorce UK?

Answer

In a divorce situation, a wife is entitled to only those benefits that the court awards her or in case the case does not go to court, then she is entitles to what the two have agreed to share such as the house, spousal support (in cases where the divorcees agree that one of them has to remain home and take care of the children), sometimes a small or substantial amount of the retirement benefits, or child support funds. The types of benefits to be received by a wife sometimes depend on the conditions that led to the divorce and the effects that the divorce will have on each spouse. Before filing for a divorce in a court of law, it is sometimes important to note that, the court may not take into consideration the factors that led to the divorce; hence, individuals should be very careful before making any divorce decisions.

There are only guidelines on what a wife is entitled to get in a divorce usually following the needs and resources approach. Capital and income are looked at together as well as any debts or obligations. One party may receive more capital and less maintenance even if there is no clean break. Pensions and other assets are also considered. The court arrives at an order which is fair and reasonable having evaluated all the various factors and balanced them against each other.
