Hello.
My wife and I are discussing a possible divorce. The next steps would be to decide our financials, where we live and how to look after the children.
I have been made aware that I may struggle financially due to being the male counterpart and the finances benefitting my partner, this worries me greatly.

What happens to me if I am unable to afford a place to stay, especially in the current climate of cost if living.
What happens if I am unable to work as much due to wanting to see my children more?
I came to the party with money, whereas my partner had nothing, does this really get shared out between us?

Hi Lorne,

Thanks for contacting amicable.

Sorting your finances is an important step in the divorce process. However, it can be very expensive.

The courts look at your finances (if requested through a consent order application) on a needs basis, meaning they will approve a financial arrangement if it meets both your and your ex-partner's needs.

In your case, I recommend speaking to one of our Divorce Specialists through a free 15-minute call, which you can book by clicking here.

We wish you all the best and will hopefully speak soon.
