We Handle Financial Disputes with Great Care & Attention
Financial disputes might arise when you are parting ways. Our experienced family lawyers offer legal advice for the fair distribution of assets.
Untangling the Knots Tying Divorce and Finance
Financial disputes might occur when you distribute financial assets, including property and pension while finalising your divorce or separation. You need to divide finances under your names and anything that’s considered marital property—even if only one partner has ownership. We have a wealth of experience in representing high-worth clients.
In most instances, you need to divide:
- Finances in the form of current savings and investments
- Real estate properties in the UK and abroad
- Pension funds
Aside from this, you can use our family law services to decide how much financial support the parent with primary care will need for child maintenance. Once you reach a mutual settlement, your designated lawyer will draft a consent order. It will cover the terms and conditions of your settlement and request the court for grant approval.
When to Consider a Financial Order?
If you cannot mutually agree upon the division of assets, you may seek legal consultation.
Your options include:
- Solicitor Negotiation
- Court order
Applying for a Financial Order
If you find the distribution of marital assets challenging, you can consult our family law specialists. We will try to resolve the dispute at an early stage via negotiation to prevent financial disputes from becoming prolonged and costly.
How Does the Court Decide?
The judge will assess different aspects of your finances and your current family expenses. Several factors determine the final decision.
- Age of both parties
- Individual ownership of financial assets and properties (in the UK and overseas)
- Current income and earning capabilities of the parties
- Financial needs and requirements of your children
- The duration of the civil partnership or marriage
- Cost of living and current expenses based on living standards and lifestyle choices
- The number of financial contributions each partner offers
In short, the court aims to distribute financial assets fairly so that both parties can lead separate lives without significant financial ties. A judge focuses on your children to ensure the child’s best interests are preserved.
