It was with great excitement we announced the opening of our new Guildford Office at the beginning of January.
Severance Of A Joint Tenancy
There are two ways to jointly own a property:
1. Joint tenants
When a property is owned by two people as joint tenants, they both own the whole of the property. In the event that one joint owner dies, the entire property would automatically pass to the surviving joint owner. This is the case regardless as to whether the deceased had a Will or not.
Finances after a foreign divorce
“I divorced outside of the UK but the finances were not dealt with – what can I do?”
“The financial order made by the foreign Court in my divorce is insufficient or is inferior to the award that would have been given if the divorce took place within the UK – what can I do?”
Do we need to wait 2 years before getting divorced?
We often meet with clients who are under the impression that they have to wait for 2 years to pass before they can get divorced. Clients also regularly believe that by waiting this 2 year period the divorce process itself will be quicker and cheaper. This is simply not correct and is often not the most sensible way for clients to proceed.
