Never lived together; Clean Break Order

Never lived together; Clean Break Order
September 11, 2020 01:29PM
Hi All

I am in the process of finalising my application for divorce. My ex and I have no assests and never lived together for a single day. I want to know if I should also apply for a clean break order? My solicitor is saying it might cost me in excess of £1500. He is citing mediator costs etc. Am I being scammed?

Thanks in advance

How can anyone possibly know the answer to that? Your solicitor knows the facts and no-one here does. It is all very well saying that you have never lived together for a single day but for all anyone knows that could be a very one sided view of the facts. What is rather more important is how long this marriage has lasted, what your respective financial circumstances are, what the view of your ex is and whether a clean break with no financial claim either way would be objectively fair.

I have noted, by the way, that you say that you and your ex have no assets. That may be so but if, for example, the reason you have no assets is because you have transferred assets to family members that would not in itself mean much. Details like these matter. Your solicitor presumably knows the facts. It would be rash of anyone to comment without knowing the same facts as your solicitor.
