Financial Issues

If your marriage or civil partnership breaks down you will need advice about finances including the future of the family home, other assets and pensions and support for any children of your relationship. 

The type of legally binding agreement will depend upon whether you are divorcing or just separated without a divorce or other formal legal process. 

Whichever route you choose, we can help you to resolve your finances.  In the majority of cases, you do not need to go to Court.  Most cases are settled by agreement either by negotiations between the couple, mediation or through the collaborative law process.

Even cases that go to Court are often settled during the proceedings without reaching a final hearing. 

Our lawyers will be able to help you by advising what would be a fair and reasonable settlement in your case once they have considered your financial position in detail.

We are highly experienced in dealing with such issues, including those involving valuable assets and family businesses.

There are many different ways of arriving at an agreement or final order, but once that stage has been reached, if there are divorce proceedings, the terms of the agreement are incorporated into a Consent Order and if there is no divorce, into a Separation Agreement.
