Advising you on Finances and Property

Ensuring you have a strong financial position is essential when leaving a relationship as this will help you build a new life. A financial dispute can be a difficult process, one we will support you through using our expertise to get the best outcome for you and your family.   

If you are married or in a civil partnership, then the judicial separation, divorce or civil partnership dissolution process would need to begin before any financial orders could be sought from the court. Property, maintenance, lump sums and or pensions either solely or jointly owned will need to be agreed upon in this process.

If you are not married or in a civil partnership, then it may be that property will need to be settled. 

How we can help

Sometimes it can be as straightforward as sending a Solicitor’s letter to the other side with an offer which can then either be negotiated or agreed upon. If this is not successful, then mediation may be appropriate. However, this would not be appropriate if, for example, there has been domestic abuse. If mediation is not appropriate or an agreement cannot be reached at mediation, then a court application may be necessary. If you are married, then it may be that you will need to agree a financial consent order. We will carefully consider your options with you and agree the right course of action for you and your family.
