Protected Divorce Settlements
1st November, 2013
The Daily Mail this week reported news that could help to protect divorce settlements.
Currently, only balances of £85,000 are protected in the event of a bank failure, but new EU regulation will see that protection increase to £500,000 in circumstances where it can be shown that the money relates to short-term balances from one-off events, such as the receipt of a divorce settlement.
These changes are aimed to reach English Law within two years.
