Understanding how financial orders are made

More people than ever are representing themselves at Court, including in applications for financial orders when they divorce, or end a civil partnership. These proceedings are held in private, meaning that how decisions are made is little understood by  anyone who hasn’t had personal experience of the process, or a relevant professional background.  In a BBC radio documentary, Splitting the Assets, judges, lawyers and former litigants discuss this complex area of family law.  First broadcast on the 3rd February, you can hear a repeat at 10.15 p.m. this Saturday, 6th February 2016, BBC Radio 4 FM.
