The 6 most important things to be decided in Family Law proceedings

If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in Separation or Divorce proceedings, ensure that you have the 6 most important bases covered in Family Law proceedings:-

1. Obtain a Divorce decree or a Judicial Separation order so that you will be in a position to move on with the rest of your life.

2. If you have children, make sure that proper provision is made for them in respect of custody and access. This will help to provide routine for the children and will hopefully lessen the impact of the separation/divorce.

3. Ensure that maintenance for you, as the spouse and any children (if applicable) is covered in your divorce/separation, in order to provide some form of financial stability.

4. Make sure that the division of all of the assets of the marriage is addressed in the separation/divorce, both in respect of property and finances.

5. Obtain pension adjustment orders, where necessary, as this is an area which can have a huge impact on one’s quality of life when one gets older.

6. Ensure that your divorce/separation provides for the waiver of succession rights so that when you die, your estate will be distributed as per your will, without a claim being made against it by your former spouse.
