Finances arrangements & Claims
The separation of finances can be one of the most stressful stages of a divorce, so ensuring you have solicitor who will fight your corner and see that all assets are divided fairly is vital.
Our experienced family law team can help with any of the common financial disputes which can arise during divorce or separation proceedings, including:
- Business assets and income
- Ongoing support and child maintenance
- Inherited assets and Trusts
If you are worried about your ex-partner attempting to dispose of assets before financial issues have been agreed, we can help you to seek immediate action to prevent this happening via an application for a financial injunction.
Equally, if you’re not ready to go down the divorce route but are considering separating from your partner, it is often wise to make things clear with a separation agreement which outlines financial and property arrangements in writing.
Pre & Post Nuptial Agreements
Once considered fairly uncommon in the UK, pre and post nuptial agreements are gaining popularity as a tool to protect wealth and provide a level of agreement and certainty for couples. They can also serve to prevent drawn out and expensive legal battles should the relationship break down.
Pre-nuptial agreements are no longer the preserve of the very wealthy but can ringfence certain assets (big or small) or business income and ensure any financial vulnerabilities are protected. Pre and post nuptial agreements are now viewed as a reasonable act of practicality and can be drafted both before and after the marriage or civil partnership ceremony has taken place.
Our friendly family law specialists have vast experience in working closely with couples to draft fair agreements and ensure your criteria is met.
