What is the re-marriage trap?


If you are divorced from your spouse and you re-marry without resolving the financial matters you will be caught in the re-marriage trap. This means you will not be able to apply for financial provision orders or property adjustment order against your spouse. However, you can still apply for a pension sharing order as this falls outside the definition of financial provision orders.

It is therefore advisable to resolve the financial matters prior to any re-marriage or at least put in motion your financial claims to avoid this situation.

If you would like to discuss any of these issues, please contact us. Your first appointment is free.
