Divorce explained for football lovers

Divorce explained for football lovers must be worth a look post Christmas no breaks when that feast of motd has stretched your marriage to a final break, we suggest you  read a recent judgment of Roberts J about divorce laws and judicial instincts applied to a an unnamed million pound a year footballer and the needs of his former wife of 19 months. Cheshire family law specialist solicitors Stonehewer Moss have been impressed by the clarity of Roberts judgments for a while and it is interesting to read how she applies her instincts when it comes to dividing up marital assets. The case is called AB v FC 2016 and it might not be as far removed from the stresses of most people in their own divorces as the high income of the footballer was not matched by vast wealth in the form of assets. Many people post David Beckham seem to aspire to a footballers lifestyle and it is often fuelled by debt. That factual scenario is not that far removed from a short term wife living at a rate beyond your  means now seeking a divorce ( or perhaps being divorced). Michael Brennan, the accredited family law solicitor at the Northwich solicitors, has noted today that debt levels are getting towards record levels in households and  remembers the pre 2008 crash average personal debts being high for most  new divorce instructions. Here the footballers wife had built legal costs to the level of  an average house value while pursuing a lifestyle of some opulence. Michael knows that no two cases are alike but human foibles can be alike in different financial circumstances. For this wife there was a high income from which monthly payments while their child grew up was ordered but still the court was clear that the aim should be independence and harsher realities may have to be addressed in the future. The costs in the case could never be recovered from the assets and the case is a reminder that settlement is often your best option. So, if Divorce explained for football lovers will fill the post Xmas gap to the next match this January, read AB v FC and make sure you take advice from an experienced divorce solicitor if it has come to that.
