Jargonbuster - Clean Break
Posted on 28th November 2022
A clean break means ending the financial ties between you and your ex-partner (husband, wife or civil partner) as soon as reasonable after your divorce or dissolution.
Where there is a clean break, there will be no spousal maintenance payments.
The only way you can guarantee that your ex-partner doesn’t try to make financial claims against you in future is to get a court order.
The court order must set out the financial arrangements and state that there is to be a clean break.
