gaining a divorce may be just what you were looking for.
one month after your divorce hearing your divorce becomes final and it then means you can marry again if you so wish.
There are other things that may need to change after a divorce has become final too and that includes your will. Whatever is written in your will not change once your divorce has been finalised, except anything that may have included your ex husband.
This could be a joint tenancy in a property. If you die, he will automatically inherit your half, unless you have reached a property settlement. You can start the legal requirements of a property settlement so that it coincides with the date of your divorce.
If you haven’t already done this you are given 12 months after your finalised divorce to do so. This time frame applies to a spousal maintenance application too.
You have to be particularly astute regarding inheritance and property issues if your husband files for divorce. This will mean you will have to seek legal advice to ensure that your legal right is upheld. Divorces can often cause bitterness and trying to treat an ex marriage partner unfairly is not uncommon.
You will need a lawyer to ensure that you have access to your entitlements. If you own a considerable amount of assets in common with your ex husband then it is particularly important that a property settlement should be reached as soon as possible. Otherwise, he may be benefiting while you are losing out.
Children are an important consideration after a divorce and sometimes ex husbands/fathers become either over protective of their children or cut them out altogether. The Court will want to know what arrangements you have made for children after the divorce and that these have been mutually agreed by both parents.
