Settling and cutting financial ties following the breakdown of a relationship can be stressful and confusing, however, there are many options we can explore with you to ensure that your desired outcome is achieved.
Some of the main issues to consider are; Who will remain in the matrimonial home/cohabiting home? How to split the proceeds of the sale/joint assets? What will happen in regards to spousal maintenance/lump sums/pension sharing? The list goes on.
Our family team will take the time to understand your situation and advise you of your options. We take into account many factors, namely ‘do the parties agree to some extent?’ and ‘Is there a dispute over all/some of the assets?’ Negotiations will take place dependent on the situation and the appropriate order can be put in place.
Rest assured, we will guide you and assist you every step of the way.
We always recommend a financial order alongside a divorce to protect your finances. If you have little or no assets, a ‘clean break’ order should be made to ensure your financial ties are severed for the future and to give you some much needed peace of mind.
Financial matters can be complex but with our legal expertise, transparency towards our clients and our personable approach, you can feel confident that your matter is being dealt with diligently and effectively. You will be kept informed and updated at every turn. We use plain English and will not bemuse you with legal jargon.
