When a couple divorces or separates they need to divide their assets fairly. They need to assess which agreements they have put in place, if any, prior to their marriage and which assets they accumulated during their time together.
With the right guidance and support you can often reach an agreement through the initial stage of settling your finances which includes negotiations and disclosure from the two parties.
Financial settlement processes
However, a clear framework of processes has been set out for couples who can not reach an agreement. These processes are complex and can become very emotional as money and asset distribution are sensitive topics for most people.
Our expert solicitors are here to advice and guide you through these complex financial settlement procedures and help you reach the outcome you deserve.Read more about financial settlements
If you are living with a person who you are not married to or in a civil partnership with, you are considered a cohabiting couple, and you will not automatically enjoy the same rights as married couples would.
If you are living with your partner and do not wish you marry you would benefit from setting out a cohabitation agreement, protecting you and your partner if your relationship was to breakdown.
The agreement is legally binding after it is signed by both partners. This will allow you and your partner to enjoy rights that are similar to the rights of a married couple.Read more about cohabitation agreements
A consent order will outline how you will split your assets with your ex after a divorce. Assets can include such things as money, investments and property.
Consent orders are voluntary agreements outlining each persons' their legal rights to their combined assets, and once approved by the courts the documents are legally binding.Read more about consent orders
Domestic abuse is still a prevalent issue in the UK, and is a matter that needs to be dealt with carefully and sensitively.
Domestic abuse can be described as a single incident or a pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening, degrading and violent behaviour.
We understand that cases involving domestic abuse should be dealt with sensitively but also urgently, as your safety, and the safety of your children is our priority.Read more about domestic abuse
Family mediation is a helpful tool to resolve any of your disputes in a civil manner and without needing to go to court.
The mediation process would involve both parties to sit down together with a qualified, professional mediator, who has got the skills and understanding to encourage discussions helping the two parties to reach a mutually beneficial agreement.Read more about family mediation
Prenuptial agreements are legally binding documents detailing what would happen to a couples’ assets, children and maintenance arrangements if a divorce would take place.Read more about prenuptial agreements
Family Law and Divorce Settlements
The process of going through a divorce can become very complex and frustrating quickly, especially if there are children and shared assets involved.
Even with prenuptial agreements in place, many aspects will need to be addressed to ensure a successful outcome without court hearings being needed.
It is preferable for anyone going through a divorce to settle the matter outside of court and maintain full control over the negotiations to save money, time and hassle.
When no agreement can be reached during negotiations and settlement meetings, the matter will proceed to court where a final decision will be made by the judge.
The outcome of the court procedure is binding and both parties are obliged to follow the judge’s ruling.
The Dangers of Do-It-Yourself Divorces
Many couples underestimate the challenges that divorce proceedings can bring, initially attempting a ‘do-it-yourself’ or online divorce.
However, this is often not effective and in many cases leads to more traditional hearings and proceedings.
Unsuccessfully attempting a ‘do-it-yourself’ divorce will likely cost the couple plenty of time, money and each other’s goodwill before starting formal proceedings.
When Court Proceedings are Necessary
In most cases, court proceedings won’t be necessary when the negotiations are handled with care and understanding.
Divorce solicitors can assist individuals during each step of the divorce process with a focus on getting the best result for their client.
Our dedicated family and divorce solicitors have guided many clients successfully through their divorce and separation proceedings, including their associated financial settlement hearings and children disputes.
