    A wife is not entitled to half the assets of any marriage..Eash case is decided on its own merits..It depends what each party brought to the marriage ,the length of the marriage and the relative ages of each party..If the marriage is short and without children then it is totally different to a longstanding one..In general if the marriage is long..say 12 years or so an ex spouse will be entitled to 50 per cent of all the assets ..My marriage was 14 years long and I think myself lucky to have had a 52/48 percent split of all assets in my favour..Each financial settlement has to be fair and reasonable..It can be arrived at amicably or can be decided by the court...

    I was going to ask if you were the one that represented my ex-wife, but then that would be divorced from reality.

    Doesn't the amount depend largely on time, and if there are children? i.e in a marriage lasting one year a spouse will be entitled (under UK law [?]) to much less than if the marriage lasted 20 years+. (This is only based on what I've read and heard from others).

    I don't know where you get your facts from but may I ask, how many times you have been divorced? Unfortunately, I have been divorced 4 times so I'd take a guess that I'm a little more qualified than you to comment on this matter.

    Tobias however, is, unless you haven't guessed by now, a lawyer and as such, way more qualified than either of us. You should not offer advice as 'fact' unless you are absolutely sure of your 'facts'. If its an opinion, say so.

    In no way whatsoever, is a spouse guaranteed half of the assets of a marriage even if the other doesn't negotiate. If that was the case I'd have been broke years ago.

    Phil, he implied in a previous post that he was a divorce lawyer. Whether there is any truth in that, we will probably never know. I just found some of his posts very rude, which you would of thought he would of learned from, since he was banned previously.

    Greg, given the 'advice' he has posted I can safely state with a 100% certainty that the poster in question has absolutely no legal training whatever.

    He's been suspended and banned from here so many times for posting drivel and insults and he clearly hasn't learnt his lesson so one of the Mod team removed him again. We don't need that type of 'contributor' here.

    I think he has an entirely different occupation Greg - one that some people say can make you go blind ;-)

    Ash,
    you will I see that I 'liked' your post about getting shafted.
    I didn't mean it that way. I liked it after the first few sentences as I agreed entirely with your experience as it was identical to mine (ie we were both separating swimmingly, until she got a Legal Aid solicitor who clearly muddied the waters, kicked the process into the long grass and dragged things out and she ended with less than what I had initially offered).
    My experience with Divorce is if both are decent intelligent people who recognise life just grew them apart and both love the kids, there is no reason why they can't sort out 95% of the stuff themselves and then take legal advice at the end to getting things lodged and signed off.

    Is it often because they are paid for their time? I've often heard people say the only winners in a divorce are the solicitors.
    I knew a couple who divorced and instead of helping them get through it as painlessly as possible, people just sought to take advantage of their situation ( those commisioned to sell their house and the 'professional' person who quickly made an offer within a few days).

    Are you suggesting dishonesty and collusion?

    They took the house off the market and discovered the person who made the offer knew the person who they'd ask for help selling. They sold their house soon after for tens of thousands more. Make of it what you will.
