For most couples going through a divorce, what will happen to the family home is likely to be at the top of their concerns.
The Court has a wide discretion concerning the future of the family home and it is true to say that there are no ‘one size fits all’ solutions.
One of the key issues that are often overlooked on divorce, particularly where separating couples are young, are pensions.
Pensions are assets that are frequently undervalued by parties, but this can be a serious mistake.
Whilst it is not possible in every case, we would always encourage divorcing couples to try and find agreement with regard to property and financial arrangements following separation.
Where agreement is reached, it is essential to take the next step of seeking legal advice to ensure that the agreement is legally binding, enforceable and capable of practical implementation.
Whilst most couples are able to resolve financial matters amicably, there are always cases when this is sadly not possible. If all other options have been exhausted, it may be necessary for Court Proceedings to take place in order to resolve matters.
Our experts are able to assist you every step of the way.
Cohabiting couples aren’t protected from the financial impact of separation in the same way as married couples are.
The law surrounding this area is constantly evolving and our advisors pride themselves upon being ahead of the game. Whether the property is held in joint names or just in your partner’s name you may well be entitled to make a claim on the property.
We can also help those planning to cohabit to put in place agreements preventing such issues on separation.
We are committed to transparency in our prices, for more details of our pricing structures, potential additional costs and disbursements
