Hi, Thanks for your accept.
If your marriage is only 5 years then it is just about a "short"marriage for the purpose of matrionial settlement. In short marriages the assets which each party acquired pre--marriage are generally retained by the person who owned them prior to marriage unless there are reasons why this should not be the case (eg. if you had children and she was to look after them).
Assets acquired during marraige would probably be shared 50% unless there were other reasons for departing (eg. her health), your assets acquired before marraige I would expect to remain yours. This is not to say that you cannot negotiate yourself a better deal with her informally.
Ok, good luck.
The advice I have given you is general, there may be other specific factors which slighlty affect your position but your solicitor will be able to take your instructions and provide appropriate advice.
Thanks for your kind accept and bonus.
