Why get a divorce NLIU

Getting a divorce will result in complete separation between you and your partner. If you separate and do not get a divorce, it could have a negative impact on your finances and restrict your options in future relationships.

Financial implications

When you are married you are legally bound to one another. When you separate, this financial tie does not go away, unless you get a divorce.

A divorce isn’t going to remove you from past debts, but it is going to make your spouse and yourself responsible for your own future debts. If you separate without a divorce and your ex-partner starts to struggle financially, you could be liable for their debts, as you are still legally marries.

Remarry & future relationships

In the UK, you cannot remarry until you get a divorce.

If you have divorced, but have not come to a financial settlement before you enter into another relationship, it could impact your future spouse. Your new spouse could be requested to submit financial documentation to ensure that the financial settlement is fair.
