Financial arrangements

If you are considering divorce, separation or dissolution of your civil partnership, we know that the financial implications can be very worrying for many of our clients.

We can advise you on all the financial matters you will need to consider, and help you to make financial arrangements that protect your interests and those of any children.

Your home: property adjustment orders

Property Adjustment Orders are court orders that determine what happens to the family home when you divorce or separate. Because these orders are usually final, we strongly advise that you talk to us about the implications of any agreement you make with your former partner.

Maintenance orders & enforcement

We can help you with the arrangements for a maintenance order for yourself or your spouse and with maintenance orders for your children. We can also advise you on enforcement of a maintenance order, if your former partner has stopped the payments.

Lump sum payments

We can advise you on the best course of action in your specific personal circumstances. If the most appropriate solution for you on separation is going to be the transfer of a lump sum from one partner to the other, we can assist you with the negotiations for an appropriate amount, as well as any other arrangements for a clean-break settlement.

Pension sharing orders

Many of our clients overlook the fact that a pension that has been paid into for the duration of your marriage or civil partnership is also a joint asset. We can help you with pension sharing orders, ensuring that you benefit from this joint asset.
