Finalise the divorce or finances first?

Should I end my marriage before completing financial matters?

It is better to reach a court approved financial agreement before completing the divorce. The Final Order of divorce affects yours and your spouse’s claims on each other’s pensions & estate. If you apply for the Final Order of divorce before reaching a financial settlement, and your spouse dies – you will not be entitled to claim on their estate or receive death in service benefits. It is therefore better to delay finalising the divorce until you have a financial agreement in place.
