The law sets out the criteria which must be taken into account when formulating financial settlements. The primary concern of the Court is the welfare of any dependent children. The Courts must also take into account your income and earning capacity, savings, housing needs, pensions, the duration of the relationship, the overall contributions, your health and any other circumstances of the case. In divorce the Court has the power to make a variety of orders:
- Periodical payments
- The Transfer of property
- The payment of a lump sum
- A Pension Sharing Order
