in the UK

In England, the starting point for the court is a 50-50 division of the assets accrued over the course of the marriage, unless there is a reason to deviate from this. The most common reason for departing from this is ‘needs’, especially if there are children. If there is more than sufficient to meet needs, then inherited assets, or assets accrued pre-marriage or post separation are generally ring-fenced, unless there has been significant co-mingling of these assets during the marriage.
