Scotland and England have different legal systems, and treat the division of finances on divorce very differently.
In dividing capital, the net value of matrimonial property will be divided equally between the parties. Capital assets owned before the marriage will not form part of the pot to be divided. In addition, the payment of spousal maintenance is limited to the three years following divorce and will be quantified at a level which moves the spouse towards independent living.
It is likely, therefore, that whether a divorce proceeds in England or Scotland will make a significant difference to the outcome of the finances in a case.
