Family Justice Council: Guidance on Financial Needs on Divorce - edition 2, April 2018

The Family Justice Council has recently published the second edition of its useful guide on the making of orders to meet financial needs following divorce and the dissolution of civil partnerships.

Since the publication of the first edition in June 2016, the guidance has established itself as an invaluable tool for the judiciary and practitioners. It is intended to clarify the meaning of 'financial needs', particularly in relation to the most commonly encountered cases in which the available assets do not exceed the parties' needs. Incorporating several helpful case studies of common scenarios, it provides a succinct summary of the law as explained and developed in the leading cases.

A limited number of printed copies are available on request - please contact:
