Yes, it does.

Scotland and England are separate “jurisdictions” with their own sets of rules with regard to the divorce process and dealing with finances arising from the marriage. In fact, England’s approach to the division of matrimonial property completely differs to the Scottish approach, including what is considered matrimonial property. The rules on maintenance after marital breakdown are also considered more generous in England. It could have a significant impact on the outcome in your case which rules govern your case. You should seek advice from a specialist family law solicitor on your case to consider what steps you should take and who can give you further guidance.

At The Family Law Company we can provide tailored advice to your situation.
