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.

Child Matters

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.

Thank you Dev and Rosewood!

Dev was super helpful, professional and ensured I got the best advice and support throughout.

Excellent service, dealt promptly with all the matters at hand and kept me updated throughout. Highly recommended!

Very Big Thank You to Dev – an excellent solicitor!

Emma was very easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable. The service I received was brilliant and I would definitely recommend Rosewood Solicitors to my family and friends. Excellent client service.

I would highly recommend Dev, he was outstanding!

Dev was the duty solicitor when I was arrested and questioned. From the outset, his calm and professional manner were a great source of comfort in a situation that was new and incredibly stressful for me. He showed great technical competence, giving me the right advice that ultimately lead to the right outcome for me. More than that though, he was also very human and understanding, going well beyond the requirements to ensure he was doing as much as possible to keep me informed and make me feel well looked after. This was exceptional service.

Emma was extremely helpful throughout the process of drafting our legal documents and always happy to answer my many questions along the way! I would highly recommend Rosewood to anyone seeking legal advice

I would like to thank all those involved at Rosewoods including yourself (Dev) for all the meetings, phone calls and the preparation, editing and final production of the necessary documentation for the hearing and being instrumental in the outcome.  I can't thank you all enough.  We'll now see how it goes from here.  I would now like to think that this is all done and dusted but should I ever need legal help in the future, I shall be returning to Rosewoods.

Emma was really helpful, friendly and approachable. I knew that if I had a question, she was happy to help or answer it as soon as possible.

I can honestly say that the best decision I made was coming to Rosewood solicitors. From the minute I called up to the very end, the service, understanding nature, support and advice was outstanding. I was not expecting the result I got and I felt that Dev, Sarah, and the barrister went above and beyond to support and help me through. I would recommend Dev and team without any hesitation. If I am ever in need of legal support or advice in the future I would only ever contact this firm. I could never thank them enough.

Emma Patel is a first rate solicitor - she gives her honest assessment in an empathetic and caring way, even when it wasn't what I wanted to hear. I hope to not need her services again but if I should I would have no hesitation in calling or recommending her.

My children and I used Rosewood Solicitors in a domestic abuse situation. They completely accepted and understood our situation and couldn't have done a better job in carrying out our wishes exactly as we wanted. We are so happy with the whole service we received from all staff members, we are very grateful.

Emma was very friendly, efficient and professional. She was willing to advise and fight for what was fair. In hindsight, the outcome was a great one in a very flawed system.

My Solicitor (Dev) made me feel comfortable discussing the case with me, provided sound advice and did his very best by me. I was made to feel that I really mattered to him, something which helped keep me strong through a very difficult period of my life.

Thank you Dev, you helped us so much I really appreciate what you did - thank you.

Both Dev & Michael (Counsel) did their utmost to keep me informed and support me, thank you.

Dev has been calm, clear and sympathetic, helping me through a situation I didn't understand and had no experience of. I really appreciate the time he has taken on my behalf, both with interviews and explaining how the system works and what to expect.

I would be more than happy to recommend Emma and her team to anyone who needs the service of a solicitor. She set realistic expectations from the start and was a great support throughout.

Dev’s responsiveness and a caring and understanding approach made a huge difference in being able to cope at a very difficult time.
