This book covers the particular legal and practical problems arising from farming divorce in Scotland. Topics covered include the tricky issues of whether the farm business and the farmland fall within the definition of “matrimonial property” or not; the nuances of partnership law and consideration of Scottish case law on farming partnerships; and the particular way in which arguments for unequal sharing often arise in farming cases, whether due to source of funds, economic disadvantage or lack of resources.

Intended as a practical guide, there are suggestions for information gathering at the first meeting; instruction of specialist valuers; and a summary of unique assets to farm businesses. The book also considers the impact of inter-generational dynamics on farming divorce, and when preventative measures such as pre-nuptial or partnership agreements might be useful.

The book is aimed primarily towards Scottish family law practitioners, but is also likely to be of interest to farming advisers and farm accountants, who either find themselves with divorcing clients or who wish to avoid pitfalls for their clients on a future separation.
