Divorce and stay-at-home mums

Dealing with a marital breakdown can be extremely distressing and emotional, especially if you’re a stay-at-home mum.

Naturally, many uncertainties will run through your head including how you will support yourself and your family financially and emotionally after the divorce and how you will be able to provide a comfortable living whilst being able to simultaneously give your child/children enough time and attention. In some situation, there may also be the question of custody.

Divorcing as a stay-at-home mum

When it comes to matters of divorce, stay-at-home mums have different needs and usually have to deal with immense financial pressures on top of the mental and emotional pressures that are prevalent with going through the stresses of a divorce, particularly if there are children involved.

Finding the right divorce lawyer for stay-at-home mums is of utmost importance especially when it comes to the financial burdens, since in most divorces it is the woman who carries the bulk of responsibility regarding children. She can be easily taken advantage of by her soon to be ex-husband if she is not properly advised by a professional divorce lawyer who is trained to meet the unique needs of women in a divorce situation.

What are my rights?

This is a particularly common issue and, understandably, will cause you anxiety and uncertainty. However, all is not lost as the courts in England and Wales have wide-ranging powers that will ensure that your ongoing needs are met. The family court can order your husband/partner to pay ongoing spousal maintenance in addition to any child maintenance that the Child Maintenance Service might assess.

The first thing you need to know is that you likely have ‘home rights’ until any permanent order is made to transfer or divide the home between you. This means that you have the right to stay in or return to the family home as you please. Talk to a divorce lawyer if you aren’t sure of your rights. As the divorcing couple, if able to, you can choose what to do with the family home and have several options.

Your finances in a divorce

Our forensic approach will ensure that you get a fair outcome and are able to safeguard what is rightfully yours. 

As part of our service, all our divorce solicitors work with our in-house accounting team. Extensive experience of tax, property, valuations, accounts and pension knowledge ensures you have a clear picture of the finances and assets in your marriage from the beginning. Justin Law are skilled at negotiating financial settlements and settling financial disputes between parties – including the division of savings, assets and the family home.

Where there are dependent children under the age of 18, this will have a large influence on how the Court exercises its discretion in dividing matrimonial assets.

      Excellent, compassionate, reassuring accessible service - Kaya Freeman

      Excellent – compassionate, reassuring accessible service. No pretence or baffling legal speak – engaging a solicitor is intimidating but we were quite at ease in Mr Sehra’s office. Prompt action and always reachable by telephone or email. Would recommend this firm to anyone with family law issues.
