What factors will the Court take into account when deciding the split of the matrimonial finances?

The judge will look at the welfare of any minor child of the family and all the circumstances of your case, specifically the factors set out in section 25 of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973. These are:

1. The financial resources, income and earning capacity of each party;
2. The financial needs, obligations and responsibilities;
3. The contributions of both parties;
4. The age of both parties and the duration of the marriage;
5. The standard of living;
6. Any physical or mental disability;
7. Conduct; and
8. The value of benefit that each party will lose due to divorce.
