Financial Settlement Divorce Solicitors

Have you wondered what would happen in relation to the assets of the marriage if you were to divorce your spouse? For instance, what would happen to the family home, would you be able to stay living there or would it have to be sold and if so, how will the proceeds be divided and how would other savings, investments and pensions be taken into consideration? It is important that you obtain legal advice when life changing decisions are to be made and at the earliest opportunity.

There are a number of factors that will be relevant to the division of your assets, including your age, how long you have been married, your financial resources and those of your spouse, your earning potential, standard of living and needs. The needs of any dependent children will be the first consideration, to ensure that they are securely housed and with their resident parent having the resources to adequately provide for them.

The ambition is to achieve a division of the assets that is fair to both spouses, but there can be creative solutions particularly in meeting needs. Our expert advice will also consider the nature of the assets and whether they should be subject to division, depending on when they were accumulated and how they were used within the marriage.

Our specialist team can advise you on all aspects of the financial process, providing clear and relevant advice that will enable you to negotiate with your spouse in confidence, to secure the best outcome. If you have reached an agreement with your spouse then we will guide you in ensuring that the agreement is formalised as part of your divorce, with a consent order approved by the Family Court.

If the financial issues are not agreed then we do support forms of dispute resolution, including mediation. We will consider what resources are available to try and resolve your dispute amicably, supporting you through the chosen process.

Ultimately, if the financial issues cannot be agreed and Court proceedings are necessary, our experienced family team can guide you every step of the way to ensure that the best settlement possible can be achieved for you.

Whether your assets are modest or considerable, our matrimonial team has the experience and expertise to assist you.

Let’s talk!

I would like to thank you for the way in which you dealt with this matter all the way through. Particularly I would express my thanks for your prompt replies to all enquiries that I raised and for keeping me so well informed of the progress of the case.

Natasha Kelt, Litigation

I would like to thank you for a superb job well done. When you have never been in the position I found myself in, it was your calm and confident manner that reassured me you would do your very best. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who requires legal advice.

Jemmar Attfield, Commercial

We would like to thank you and your team so much for all the help and advice we received and for acting in a courteous and professional manner at all times. Thank you also Lee for patiently addressing all the issues we raised and for explaining everything to us so clearly, sometimes repeatedly, until you were satisfied we fully understood the more complex issues with our Wills; you personally, were highly recommended to us by one of your grateful clients. Likewise, we too would not hesitate to highly recommend you to anybody planning to make a Will.

Lee Hibell, Private Client
I cannot praise you and your team enough for the professional way you handled my situation, you have been so kind and reassuring in what has been a very emotional and distressing time.
Melanie Steeples, Family

I must say her handling of the transaction was first rate and very professional. Always available and she was never afraid to pick up the phone and share information when it was better to communicate that way rather than just email, a blessing in this day and age. Though both parties were keen for a quick exchange she never allowed that pressure to mean she cut any corners with her enquiries and was always working in my best interests.

I will be more than happy to work with her again in the future and will certainly recommend her to friends and associates who require similar services.

Amber Day, Property

Thank you for your prompt and concise response. That certainly makes things very clear and straight forward. Overall thank you for all your help and advice……. Should I need a solicitor in the future I will be sure to call your firm.

Michelle Breindel, Crime & Motoring
