Financial Settlement

The breakdown of a marriage can leave you in an unexpected position faced with uncertainties over your home, your finances and your children. We seek to alleviate the pressure on you at what is an emotionally challenging time by providing you with expert legal advice.

We recognise that the prospect of reaching a financial agreement at such a time of uncertainty is a daunting one, especially where the matrimonial assets are complex. From trusts to international property, we are experienced at taking a careful, methodical approach to ensure that we are able to reach the best possible financial outcome for you and your family.

As members of Resolution, we deal with cases in a constructive and non-confrontational manner and actively encourage settlement without the need of lengthy and costly court proceedings. Indeed, the Court’s involvement in reaching a financial settlement need not be extensive and can be limited to only the consideration of the final financial agreement. We are able to advise you on the following alternative forms of dispute resolution to Court that may be appropriate for you:-

  • Direct negotiation;
  • Arbitration;
  • Mediation;
  • Negotiation through solicitors.

If Court proceedings are necessary, we are pleased to provide robust advice on strategy and conduct.
