Tamara Glanvill, divorce & family solicitor Bedford
Dealing with farms in divorce cases is a particularly tricky area.
A farm is a complicated business asset and quite often owned by more than the parties that are separated. So people who own a farm do need specialist advice from a family lawyer who is used to dealing with farming assets. A farm as a business asset is just one of the marital assets as far as the divorce courts are concerned and so it goes into the pot for division on divorce. It is really important that everybody knows which part of the farm is capable of division and that needs some specialist advice.
