Financial issues are one of the most complex and main concerns for any separating couple. This area of any separation can cause the most disagreements and disputes. We try to help you reach a financial remedy, resolving any issues, before using the route of mediation and the costly expense of court.
Our Family Team recognise your concerns and will work with both parties to achieve a fair and amicable outcome, taking into consideration your financial security and that of any children involved.
It is never too early to seek advice on your position, even if you are not 100% sure the separation will go ahead.
THE STEPS WE TAKE TO FINANCIAL REMEDY
We will assist you in the negotiation of agreements and aim to achieve a Consent order which can be approved by the Court. Through negotiation and mediation, we will advise you about making proposals for financial settlement. You can attend mediation with or without your spouse, depending on the situation and relationship.
If you are unable to come to an agreement, or your partner does not provide you with the sufficient financial disclosure, we may need to ask the Court to decide what orders to make. This is done by making an application for Financial remedy.
What Orders can the Court make?
Property Adjustment Order
