Resolving Financial Issues
Your relationship has broken down and you need to understand your options. Who will live in the family home? How will assets be divided? Will pensions be shared? Understanding your rights and responsibilities financially can be daunting, and it is important that you obtain expert legal advice about these issues when separating.
How we can help...
We represent individuals in all aspects of matrimonial finances and provide you with clear, practical and constructive advice based on your individual needs. We are experienced in complex financial cases including those involving companies, partnerships and high value assets. We can offer specialist legal advice if you have inherited wealth, have an interest in assets abroad, or have the benefit of a government pension scheme. If your marriage or civil partnership has an international element, it is important to be aware that different countries have different attitudes and approaches when dealing with financial disputes. We can give you expert legal advice to help you find the best possible solution.
We can provide you with a seamless service, directing you to our Commercial team for support; to our Wills and Probate team to prepare wills and trusts to further protect your assets or to our sister company of Emsleys Estate Agents Ltd to help you sell or buy a house.
Our specialist family law solicitors are all members of Resolution, a national organisation of family lawyers committed to practising family law in a way which is constructive, child focused, preserves dignity and lessens acrimony. Our Head of Family Law is a nationally accredited expert in financial issues and is a member of the Law Society’s Family Law panel. We negotiate to secure excellent results and can provide mediation and collaborative law if you prefer not to go to court. If court proceedings are necessary we will represent your interests to achieve the best outcome for you.
