Lady Margaret Road and Brent Cross Gardens Legal Centre can advise you on the factors the court takes into account in a Family Law case. Under this important legislation the court has to consider financial orders, the factors to be considered are found in S25(2) MCA 1973.

The courts have regards to the following matters under
a) the income, earning capacity, property and other financial resources which each of the parties to the marriage has or is likely to have in the forseeable future, including in the case of earning capacity which it would in the opinion of the court be reasonable to expect a party to the marriage to take steps to acquire;

b) the financial needs, obligations and responsibilities which each of the parties to the marriage has or is likely to have in the forseeable future;

c) the standard of living enjoyed by the family before the breakdown of the marriage;

d) the age of each party to the marriage and the duration of the marriage;

e) any physical or mental disability of either parties to the marriage;

f) the contributions which each of the parties has made or is likely in the forseeable future to make to the welfare of the family, including any contribution by looking after the home or caring for the family;

g) the conduct of each of the parties, if that conduct is such that it would in the opinion of the court be inequitable to disregard it;

h) the value to each of the parties to the marriage of any benefit which, by reason of the dissolution or annulment of the marriage, that party will lose the chance of acquiring.
