Do you need legal advice regarding financial arrangements following your separation or divorce?

Financial disputes most commonly arise among couples who are separating or divorcing. Negotiating such disputes can be exceptionally challenging and stressful.

If you are unable to reach an agreement independently, or if your financial position is complicated, our Family Law team can provide expert legal assistance. We have a wealth of experience in resolving a wide range of financial disputes. We are accredited by Resolution as specialising in financial remedy proceedings advocacy and are also accredited by the Law Society as members of their Family Law Panel. This demonstrates our knowledge, skill and expertise in this area of law.

Financial Arrangements Arising From Separation Or Divorce

Choosing to separate or divorce can be a difficult and emotional time and when disagreements over finances are involved, this can often exacerbate the situation.

If you are negotiating a separation agreement or divorce and either party owns a business, depends on the other party, has children who depend on them or wish to contest assets, then you will benefit from obtaining professional legal advice. With decades of expertise in this field, our Family Law team are well qualified to assist.

We can advise in relation to the various financial claims available to couples upon a divorce, separation or dissolution of a civil partnership, including claims for periodical payments (maintenance), lump sums, pensions and orders in respect of property ownership. We are also able to advise and assist in relation to child maintenance and making claims through the Child Maintenance Service.

When working with you we will consider your financial needs and current circumstances and advise you on the best approach to the financial issues involved in your case, whether that be mediation, voluntary financial disclosure or an application to Court.

Should the case reach the Courts, there is a wide range of possible outcomes. Courts have the power to order parties to pay regular payments or lump sums to one another, transfer property and other assets and determine pension entitlements. We will work hard to make sure that such decisions are made with your best interests in mind. We have extensive experience of successfully working with high net worth clients as well as those of more modest means, so regardless of your personal circumstances we are confident that we will be able to assist.
