Separation and Finances

A crucial element in the divorce proceedings is finances, and this runs hand in hand with the divorce petition.  We advise clients to resolve Finances at the same time as dealing with the divorce petition, as this is often the best opportunity to negotiate a clean break.  Until a consent order has been obtained (or another formal order of the court) your spouse (or former spouse) can potentially claim on any assets you hold.

Financial arrangements are often the most contentious aspect of any separation but we are experienced in negotiating on behalf of our clients to achieve a fair settlement.  Where the financial arrangements are agreed by both parties, then the Court may approve this agreement by way of Consent Order.

In absence of any agreement then it may be necessary to apply for Ancillary Relief whereby the Courts order a financial split.

Our experienced divorce lawyers will work hard ensure that the financial affairs of all parties are fully explored and a fair settlement is achieved, by negotiation if possible but by Court Order if not.
