UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Hello – Firstly in terms of the Financial Separation Agreement. Yes these are valid in England and Wales, but they are not strictly enforceable. That is to say a judge can change the terms when solemnising a Consent Order. The Consent Order states the financial settlement terms on divorce. In terms of the debt. The Separation Agreement can state that you will accept responsibility for your wife’s debt, but the creditors can still pursue her for the money if you do not pay, if that debt was raised in her name. I trust that this clarifies matters. Your 5 star rating is much appreciated.
