The financial aspects of divorce or separation can often give rise to more concern than the divorce or separation itself. Having fully understood your financial circumstances, we will talk you through your options. These often include regular maintenance or lump sum payments, property transfers or sale and dividing up pensions.
No two cases are the same so we will look at your individual circumstances and help you achieve the most suitable outcome either by negotiating a settlement or, if necessary using the court system.
Because of the extent of our specialism and experience within the team, the involvement of experts or barristers is undertaken only when strictly necessary. Where expert financial advice is required on issues such as valuations of partnerships, companies and pensions we have a panel of experts available including our own in-house financial advisor and investment managers.
We also have three qualified and highly experienced mediators and collaborative lawyers who can work to find a solution for you.
