Know your financial entitlement
Divorce and separation will most likely involve the division of matrimonial assets. Such assets could include properties, shares, bank accounts or simply furniture.
You may have concerns about how you will manage financially following your separation, and how you will meet the everyday outgoings for yourself or any children if you have not been the main earner in the family. Alternatively you may worry about protecting your assets and income from division during divorce, in particular assets carefully saved prior to a marriage, or inherited from family.
