Some couples find it impossible to agree how to split their finances, or they can agree on some things but not others.
If that’s the case with you, you might find it helpful to use somebody impartial to help you come to an agreement – for example, a mediator.
Another option is to get legal advice from a solicitor.
You might need professional help if:
- you took out a loan for your ex-partner which they can’t or won’t pay
- you don’t own the home but want to make a financial claim against your ex-partner
- you and your ex-partner have a joint business that you can’t agree how to divide
- you and your ex-partner own your home between you but can’t agree how to split it
- you and your ex-partner have a joint mortgage and you can’t agree who should pay what, or
- you and your ex-partner drew up a ‘living together agreement’ which set out how you would split your finances, but they’re refusing to keep to it.
