We have a wealth of experience dealing with divorce and dissolution of civil partnership cases and related issues such as children and finances.

  • Divorce financial settlements: once you have decided to divorce, you should obtain a financial remedy order, either by consent (a consent order) or through fully contested proceedings. A financial remedy order sets out how assets are divided and can include property, savings, shares, pensions, liabilities for debts, and maintenance payments. You should be aware that the divorce itself will not sever the financial ties between you and your partner, these will remain live until they are dismissed by a clean break clause within the financial remedy order.
  • Childcare arrangements: if you are in the process of separating or divorcing, you will need to make arrangements for your children, including where they live and how much time they will spend with the non resident parent. It is also possible for grandparents’ to apply to the court for a child arrangements order, although they will need the court’s permission to make such an application.

We can also advise about complex divorce and separation matters, such as pre and post nuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements and separation agreements.

We can advise on divorce mediation. We are committed to achieving the best outcome for you and will always be available to answer any questions that you may have.

Getting specialist divorce and legal advice is vital, and it is never too early to speak to a solicitor especially if you are intending to marry and have pre-acquired assets which you would like to protect should the relationship breakdown in the future.

Whilst currently it is not possible for us to oust the jurisdiction of the court and to guarantee that such an agreement will be upheld, for you to have the best chance you should ensure that the agreement is entered into at least 4 to 6 weeks before the marriage. This will avoid the party wishing to renege on the agreement saying that they were under duress to sign the agreement. It is also vital that both parties take independent legal advice before signing the agreement.

This will avoid the party wishing to renege on the agreement saying that they did not understand what they were signing. For the best possible chance of having the agreement upheld in the future, there should be a full and frank exchange of financial disclosure so that both parties are fully aware of the assets in question prior to signing the agreement.

Finally, it is advisable to ensure that the agreement is reviewed regularly throughout the marriage, for example if there is a change of circumstances such as a child/children being born.
