Many clients are concerned as to what will happen when they separate from a partner or divorce their spouse. The common concerns are:
- Will I be able to stay in the family home?
- How will I be able to rehouse with the children?
- How will I be able to cope with my finances?
- Can I get maintenance for myself or the children?
- What level of maintenance should I be paying for my ex or the children?
- What will happen to our shares, savings and assets?
- How can we pay off our debts and liabilities, who should be responsible for them?
- What will happen to my pension?
- Can we just walk away with what we brought into the marriage?
Whether you are considering a divorce, ending a civil partnership or have spilt up with a partner finances will be a concern for you. We have experience of handling financial settlements ranging form very low asset cases to those of high net worth individuals.
In the present economic climate we have risen to the challenge and are negotiating settlements and representing clients at court in a cost-effective manner so that we can get the best solution for you. At every stage of your case we will bear in mind the costs incurred and always provide you with the options available to you and advice you whether we believe that you would get a better deal at Court or via an early settlement. Acting in your best interest is always our primary concern.
We can negotiate on your behalf to reach a settlement on your finances that can be converted into an agreement. This can be done via a Consent Order to be placed before the Court or a Deed of Separation which can formalise the agreement on separation from your partner.
If we believe that your matter may benefit from mediation then we will happily refer you to mediators with whom we have a close working relationship. We can provide you with legal advice the whole way through the mediation process and then convert any agreement reached in to a legal document.
It may be the case that you are considering your finances before formalising your relationship. If you are considering getting married or moving in with a partner we can help clarify your obligations and intentions towards each other by drawing up a Pre-nuptial Agreement or a Cohabitation agreement for you.
Are you concerned about how you will cope financially following a separation or divorce? If so, it is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible to ensure you are aware of your legal rights and options. For help and advice please call us on 0208 464 4242 or send your enquiry to email@example.com.
We offer a fixed fee, no obligation one hour interview so that we may provide you with initial advice and suggest the options for your next course of action. We also hold Saturday morning and Tuesday evening clinics if you wish to see a solicitor outside normal working hours.
Should you wish to see a male or female solicitor we would be happy to accommodate your request.
