Jo Carr-West comments on the changing face of divorce in the UK in The Telegraph

Although few warring couples will be faced with the luxury of squabbling over millions in assets and salaries, most divorces are tainted by frustration, antipathy and downright spiteful behaviour, as new BBC1 drama The Split deftly demonstrates. The series, which starts next week, revolves around a family of high profile London divorce lawyers, their demanding clients and their own complicated dynamics.

Partner Jo Carr-West comments on the changing face of divorce in the UK:

“The lack of public understanding surrounding cryptocurrencies and the volatility of their value, can lead to uncertainty and feed anxiety within a divorce exacerbating any distrust. The key is to try to avoid offsetting the value of the cryptocurrency against traditional assets and share the asset between the parties so that they can each share the risks and benefits associated with it.

“Although a specialist court for super-rich couples is controversial, it should be welcomed, as any attempt at making the court system more efficient is a step forward for all divorcing couples. However, even though a more efficient court system may reduce the cost of the process, it will still only be those parties who are capable of representing themselves, or able to afford long-term legal representation, who will be able to pursue financial litigation on divorce.”
