(dis)agreements



Financial Agreements were introduced in December 2000, essentially to reduce legal costs and court proceedings in instances of marriage breakdown and subsequent asset allocation. The original legislation was open to some interpretation and over the years a number of 'clarifications' have been enacted in order to make it more difficult for financial agreements to be found not binding. 

Surprisingly, the addition of several thousand words of amendment has succeeded in only adding more ambiguity. An enormous shock to all involved...

Another illustration for the Law Society Journal and Art Director Larraine Hall. I'm enjoying these enormously!
