Divorce Financial Settlements
The main objective when separating your finances during divorce should be to achieve a fair outcome. Often, this can be done with a voluntary agreement between the parties. However, there are times when an agreement will not be found and Court proceedings may be required.
Dealing with the financial matters that arise when a couple divorces, in a way that leaves no room for error, can be a challenge. It is therefore essential to have the support of a specialist family lawyer with extensive experience in guiding clients through the range of options, including for a negotiated settlement or Court ordered financial separation.
At Chattertons, we can use our expertise in constructive negotiation to achieve an amicable settlement where possible. Where a more robust approach is required, we will issue proceedings and deal with matters through the Court in an efficient and pragmatic manner which gets results.
Our clients’ circumstances vary, from cases where the assets of the marriage are limited, to those where the family finances are intricate, including dealing within complex matters involving family businesses, farming families and individuals with overseas interests.
The firm’s in-house Wealth Management team can provide independent financial advice to ensure that clients’ best interests are protected along the way. Whatever the issues, each client receives a high level of service and personal approach.
