Thank you for confirming.
I apologise for the delay in responding, but I was taken ill with the arrival of the cold weather.
I can confirm that UK law will apply to your divorce proceedings.
Since you mention that the division of assets is likely to be contested, you would be well advised to instruct a solicitor to assist you.
The court will look at all your assets and also your wife's and children's needs. It will make a decision on (1) how the family assets should be divided and (2) what maintenance award (if any) to make based upon all the evidence.
The starting point for division of the assets is usually 50/50. This includes all assets acquired during the time you were married.
From what you say, I would strongly recommend that you try agreeing a settlement with your wife if at all possible. You may want to ask “Resolution” for assistance. It is a lawyers’ association of family lawyers who can help in mediating a settlement, rather than fighting it out in the courts:
