Hi, thank you for your question. Please confirm if the issue is in relation to a matter in England or Wales?
Thanks for confirming. There is a list of criteria that a court considers when deciding on a financial settlement as part of a divorce, and one issue would be the needs of the parties. If one party has higher needs (for example due to mental health issues) then a court can be persuaded that there should be a departure from equality in order for needs to be met.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
