Financial Settlements

If you need advice or assistance concerning your finances after the breakdown of a relationship, I can help.  One of the biggest concerns my clients come to me with is the worry about what happens to their finances and assets if they divorce or separate.

To discuss your specific circumstances with me, give me a call today on 07917711887.

Why do I need a financial settlement?

Alongside the divorce process, it is also necessary for the two of you to reach a financial settlement to ensure that all of the potential claims that each of you may have against the other’s income, capital and pension are extinguished. This is usually achieved by entering into a clean break order. A clean break allows you both to know where you stand, and to move on with your lives.

How will our assets be divided in divorce?

Deciding how best to divide the assets of the marriage is one of the most pressing concerns on relationship breakdown. I will outline the factors specific to your circumstances that may affect how your assets will be divided, the below is to give you an idea of what may affect your financial settlement in divorce.

Financial claims often relate to the appropriate division of the following:

  • The family home and any other property
  • Lump sums of money
  • Apportionment of investments or shares
  • Maintenance
  • Pensions

In order to decide on what constitutes a fair and reasonable settlement various factors are taken into account to include:

  • the welfare of any children of the family
  • the income, earning capacity, assets and financial resources of the parties
  •  the financial needs, obligations and responsibilities of the parties
  • The standard of living enjoyed by the parties
  • The age of each party and the length of the marriage
  • the health of each party
  • The contributions made by the parties

I can ensure your case is presented fully, and that all of your interests and limitations are taken into account. I specialise in helping clients attain a financial settlement that is favourable to them,  and can help you get the results you need.
