The financial element of a divorce or separation can often be the most protracted and complex aspect of the proceedings.
The terms of any settlement will depend on all the circumstances of your case including the duration of the marriage, standard of living, the needs of both parties and the children and well as both parties’ financial circumstances. We ensure that your interest in the matrimonial assets is protected throughout, where necessary including injunctions to freeze assets to ensure funds are not disposed of.
Financial disclosure is the first step towards any financial settlement and must include all assets each party has themselves or has an interest in. This includes pensions, trusts, art collections, etc and must include assets located anywhere in the world.
After full financial disclosure from both you and your spouse we will advise on suitable terms of settlement. Such terms can include transfer of property, a cash lump sum and pension sharing, as well as maintenance payments for a spouse and any children.
