Finances on Divorce / Separation
When a marriage or Civil Partnership breaks down, one of the most difficult areas for parties to resolve is the division of assets.
There are many ‘factors’ that the court takes into account when considering the division of assets. Achieving a settlement that meets the needs of all parties can be difficult to achieve, but we have the expertise and legal knowledge to guide you through the process, taking a robust approach where required in order to achieve the best possible solution given your circumstances.
If you have initiated divorce proceedings, then the most secure way of resolving financial matters is by embodying that agreement within an Order of the court. If you are able to reach an agreement with your spouse (either directly or via negotiations between solicitors) then this agreement is known as a Consent Order. However, sometimes it is not possible to reach a negotiated settlement and it is at this stage that the parties may require an application to the court in order to achieve a financial resolution.
We are experts in the area of financial settlements within divorce / dissolution, and we can guide you through the process of court proceedings with compassion and understanding. We know that the court process can be daunting, but our approachability, combined with legal knowledge and tenacity set us apart as being a team that provides robust and realistic advice and support through this difficult process.
