Financial orders

In separations, the financial order procedures and the available financial orders are broadly the same as those in the divorce or dissolution process. However, there are exceptions:

  • You can't apply for a pension sharing/PPF compensation sharing order, although you may apply for a pension attachment or PPF compensation attachment order.
  • The court considers your financial application after they grant the judicial separation order or separation order. The order is effective immediately unless otherwise stated.

See the section on Financial orders for more information.
