When you separate, consideration needs to be given to your finances. This is usually the most difficult task and we recognise that worries over money cause anxiety and tension in what is already a stressful and upsetting situation.
We are experienced in dealing with all the financial issues that arise when a couple separate, including housing, pensions and family businesses. We appreciate that every case is different and we will provide you with advice that is appropriate and cost effective for you.
Whenever appropriate we will help you resolve matters by using alternative methods to court such as mediation, the collaborative law process and Arbitration. However, we understand that not every case can be resolved without the intervention of the court and that some cases require a robust approach to ensure a fair financial settlement can be reached within the court process. We are very experienced in dealing with such cases and we will guide you through the court process from start to finish.
