3.45pm-4.45pm: Financial Needs, Sharing and Compensation
What are needs? How do the courts assess needs? At what level should needs be met? How does the parties’ standard of living during the marriage affect needs? For how long should needs be met? When is sharing and compensation to be taken into account? This talk will examine these and other issues involved in the assessment of ‘needs’ in the light of the Family Justice Council’s ‘Guidance on Financial Needs on Divorce’ and recent case law.
