Finances

Myth
  Myth
“I’ve always worked, paid the mortgage and provided everything. My wife has never worked and has just stayed at home with the children. She’ll need enough to live on, but I will keep the rest.”

So far as the law is concerned, there is no greater merit in financial contribution than there is in keeping house, raising the children and supporting a spouse in their career. A judge will try to divide assets equally and produce a fair result according to the needs of the parties. The party who has not worked will often get a greater share of the assets because they have sacrificed a career for the sake of the family. The other is more likely to be able to borrow money if necessary and be better able to recover financially from the hit of finances being divided on divorce.
