One of the biggest worries for divorcing couples is finance and whether they can keep their home and how much money they will have to live on.
We are financial specialists and have a long history of delivering favourable financial settlements to our clients. We provide expert advice on a wide range financial matters and can negotiate settlements with your partner on your behalf. Getting professional advice will help you sort out your finances fairly and help prevent problems in the future.
Even if your split is amicable, or you have reached a financial settlement between yourselves, you should get a Consent Order drawn up to record any financial agreement. If you do not, you may find your ex-partner making a financial claim against you in future.
A Consent Order is a legally binding document drawn up by a solicitor. Typically, it will include what will happen to any property, savings, shares, businesses and pensions. It may also include child and spousal maintenance.
We will give you practical advice and support and guide you through every aspect of the process. We are known for our commercial approach and ability to negotiate financial agreements in complex matters. We will ensure our advice is as cost-effective as possible and tailored to your own circumstances. We work with you to find a negotiated settlement wherever possible, avoiding the stress and expense of having to go to court.
Achieving the right outcome for you and your family financially may need more than simply legal advice. We are fortunate to work with specialists in all of the areas with which you may need assistance when considering a financial settlement, not only in this jurisdiction but internationally. We can draw on the advice of counsellors and psychotherapeutic experts for personal issues and, in relation to finances, advisers from tax, trust and commercial backgrounds as well as expert valuers to assist with business or other specialist valuations.
We can negotiate child maintenance on your behalf and assist you to make sure your children’s futures are provided for. Even if you are not married, having a child together may entitle you to make a financial claim against the other parent on the child’s behalf.
We will ensure our advice is clear and realistic, even in the most complicated cases. We will work as cost-effective as possible and work with you to find a negotiated settlement wherever possible, avoiding the stress and expense of having to go to court.
