Finances

The breakdown of a relationship can have major implications for your personal finances and property. We have in-house experts who will assist you through the financial consequences of separation. No matter how complicated your case may be, we are able to draw upon the vast experience within our firm to ensure that you receive comprehensive legal and financial advice.

In the majority of cases there will be financial matters which will need to be resolved following divorce. For example, the matrimonial assets such as the marital home and other property, pensions and business interests may need to be re-distributed between the parties and consideration given to claims for maintenance.

Financial Matters Following Divorce

Resolving financial matters can be very difficult and in some cases acrimonious. Because we can combine the experience of our Family Law team with the expertise of our in-house Independent Financial Adviser, we can help you to achieve the best possible outcome whilst minimising the distress normally associated with divorce.
