Our financial dispute resolution services

Divorce finances

The financial side of divorce can be particularly challenging, with the need to make a fair division of assets, as well as considering issues such as child maintenance and spousal maintenance where appropriate.

Drawing on our decades of specialist experience, we can assist with achieving a fair divorce financial settlement through constructive negotiation or by applying to a family court for a financial order where required.

Our expertise includes both standard family financial assets, such as your home, both spouses’ incomes and pensions, as well as complex and high value assets, including business interests and international assets.

Financial disputes concerning children

It is essential that children be financially provided for when the relationship between their parents breaks down, as well as in the years to come. This covers basic living costs, such as food and housing, as well as potentially a range of other costs, such as school fees and unplanned one-off expenses.

Our financial disputes expert can help parents come to a sensible agreement on financial support for their children or assist with applying to a court for child maintenance awards, non-payment of child maintenance and other types of financial assistance.

Money and property disputes between unmarried couples 

Unmarried couples have no automatic rights to each other’s financial assets when they separate, meaning parties can sometimes find themselves in financial difficulties after a separation.

Our family lawyer can advise you on your rights and options, including helping to negotiate a financial settlement where appropriate.

Divorce financial injunctions

During divorce and separation, there is often a worry that one of the parties may attempt to dispose of or hide assets to avoid their inclusion in any financial settlement.

We can assist with applying for a financial injunction (sometimes called a ‘freezing order’) to prevent the sale or transfer of assets. This can ensure all relevant assets are properly considered during a settlement.

If you have been made the subject of a financial injunction which you feel is unfair, we can also advise you on your options for challenging the injunction.

How we calculate our fees

We charge for all of our divorce services on a time basis, so you will be charged only for the exact amount of time we spend working on your case.

When you contact our team, we will provide an estimate of costs tailored to your requirements, so you have a realistic idea of the likely cost of your divorce.

Please note, we are unable to represent clients on a legal aid basis.
