The law that governs financial settlements on divorce is a law of discretion. There are no rules which state how the assets should be divided, if spousal maintenance should be paid and if so how much should be paid and for how long. The law does however contain guidelines regarding what a judge should consider when deciding what an appropriate financial settlement is. These guidelines are contained in section 25 Matrimonial Causes Act 1973. These are often referred to as the section 25 factors.
