Divorce carries a host of complex financial issues many of which can last many years after separation. A divorce only deals with the end of a marriage. Financial claims can remain intact which means a spouse could make a claim against you at any time in the future. Untangling these financial issues can be daunting and complicated.
To avoid ongoing disputes, we work with you to secure a satisfactory financial remedy, which works for all sides and avoids costly, lengthy, and upsetting court proceedings.
This could include a financial remedy order, known as a consent order, that can dismiss a spouse’s claims against you. This is a legally binding decision between you and your partner about how you will divide your assets and wealth when your marriage ends and can cover issues such as:
- Rights to property
- Any international assets
- Liabilities for debts
- Child arrangements/child maintenance.
There is no one size fits all solution for these financial remedy orders, and you will not necessarily have to go to court in order to reach a settlement. Our professional team of solicitors can help you reach a solution through mediation or collaboration. Our team involves an accredited family law solicitor and mediator who can help you reach a swift resolution.
