Financial Arrangements On Divorce

Financial Arrangements On Divorce

This is one of the most crucial and stressful factors in any separation or divorce.
The process is more complex than many people realise. Most importantly: the reason the divorce was granted does not usually impact on the financial settlement. This means that your ex-spouse will still have a claim on your assets, even if their adultery or unreasonable behaviour led to your divorce.

We provide practical and clear advice. This takes into account your individual circumstances including the length of marriage, age, assets, income and earning capacities. Such assets may include the family home, investment properties, pensions, maintenance, national and international businesses. We provide specialist advice on how complex international wealth, trusts and inherited wealth will affect your financial settlement.

Sometimes swift action may be required in order to obtain a fair settlement. We will advise how to prevent spouses or partners concealing, removing or disposing of financial assets. Where necessary we instruct recognised financial investigators. We have a network of international contacts, which means we can work across international borders and jurisdictions.

Our team provide expert advice on financial claims for your children in relation to housing, capital, school fees and maintenance. We will advise on the factors the Court will consider when establishing their needs.

We act for intervenors and third parties such as companies, business partners, parents and siblings. This is necessary when one or both of the divorcing parties claim ownership of assets that rightly belong to others. If you are in this situation we can act promptly to ensure your interests are recognised and protected.

We will always aim to negotiate a settlement rather than take you through Court proceedings. However, if the other side is being unreasonable then we have the knowledge and experience to robustly fight your corner. It is certainly still possible to negotiate a settlement whilst a Court process is ongoing. In other words, we can use the threat of Court action to make your ex-spouse and their legal team provide you with a fair settlement.

Our Family Law team is here to help you through this difficult time. Our aim is to get you a fair settlement so you can move on with your life and look to the future rather than the past.
