Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. You should see a solicitor who can look at your individual circumstances, however, I can give you some general help in the meantime and from what you have told me its likely that there will be an equal division of matrimonial assets. That will include the house, any money held by either of you, all other assets including pensions and the value of the business. All of the assets will have to be valued and a half share of assets attributed to each of you. Certain assets may have to be liquidated; Others may be capable of transfer and set off as appropriate. That deals with capital. As regards ***** ***** you are not working your husband may have to pay maintenance to you for a period to enable you to adjust and possibly get back to work. You don't mention children. If you have children under 16 or at university or college or apprenticeship then certain rules apply there too. Happy to discuss any specific points. In the meantime I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
