Financial Issues

When a relationship breaks down, resolving the financial issues arising from a separation is always of considerable concern to those involved. Negotiating a satisfactory resolution to financial issues can be complex and require skilled handling.

The first step in obtaining a fair settlement is to ensure that both parties have given a full, clear and accurate picture of their financial positions. This may not be straightforward as there can be a reluctance to provide this information.

The majority of cases are settled by negotiation but frequently applications are made to the Court to ensure that the matter is dealt with in a reasonable time. Only a few cases proceed to a final hearing where a judge decides the case.

In divorce, the court can make a variety of orders, including orders transferring property, pension sharing orders and lump sum orders. Our Family Team can guide you through the process, swiftly and cost effectively securing a settlement that is individually tailored for you.
