Thank you. In terms of financial claims, as part of a divorce you are both entitled to pursue a financial relief claim against the other - this can be for a variety of reasons, such as property transfers, pensions, spousal maintenance, child maintenance and lump sum orders. You state that you do not have any assets, but there may be a claim possible in relation to spousal maintenance if she cannot meet her reasonable needs.If both of you have absolutely no assets, and therefore nothing to claim for, and you are both able to meet your reasonable needs, it would be highly recommended to agree to a clean break - this will end all claims between you both.You should be aware that the divorce does not end the risk of a financial claim between you - this is only ended by the prospective party remarrying before a claim or a court order / clean break order.I hope this assists you.
