When dealing with divorce settlements, couples have been filling out faulty Ministry of Justice forms since April 2014, it has been discovered.

Debts were not included in the calculations, potentially producing inflated and inaccurate figures. 

Though unsure of the numbers of those affected, the Ministry of Justice is rapidly trying to identify such cases and write to the affected parties.

This may mean that many divorced couples will have to renegotiate their settlements.
