When a married couple decide that they will separate, the finances of the marriage will need to be divided. The law of Divorce in Scotland contains certain principals. The first principal is that there will be a fair sharing of the matrimonial property. The matrimonial property is everything that has been acquired by the parties in either parties’ sole name or in joint names between the date the couple married and the date they separated. Such assets will often include the family home, bank accounts, cars and pensions.
