The World Law Dictionary Project

English may be the common language of the world, but the Common Law is not the common law of the world

That’s why, in a unique project, TransLegal has teamed up with leading law schools from around the world to create an online multilingual law dictionary linking the world’s legal languages to a single English law dictionary.

e.g. principle, consideration, jurisdiction

financial provision order noun

a court order telling a couple whose marriage or civil partnership has broken down how to divide their assets and income. A court may make a financial provision order if the couple is unable to agree between themselves how to divide their assets and income. The money may be in the form of a lump sum payment (=a single payment) or periodic payments, or both.
We are asked to decide whether the husband's non-disclosure led to a financial provision order substantially different from that which the court would otherwise have made.
