Divorce North & South of the Border

Thanks to John Bolch of Family Focus for pointing out a story in The Times this morning comparing the differences between divorce settlements in Scotland and England & Wales.

Taking the scenario of a couple with assets of £10m and eligible to divorce in either jurisdiction it is figured that a husband would be considerably worse off divorcing in England than Scotland. In other circumstances the wife would be better off issuing in Scotland. - "Food for thought as to whether legislation to introduce a more streamlined system could be brought in across the UK."
