There are various financial aspects that need to be considered when a marriage or civil partnership breaks down. The division of finances and assets is a common aspect of both divorce and separations. Often negotiations of this nature can lead to acrimonious disputes if not handled with care and professionalism.
Our team of expert solicitors can assist in providing you with legal advice towards pension sharing orders, lump sums, maintenance or periodic payments, transfer of property and variations of previous orders. We are able to help in negotiating settlements and can even provide you with options that may reduce any legal fees.
Child maintenance is also included when dealing with financial settlements; whereby our team can help you decide or negotiate what level of maintenance should be payable. This area of law can be highly complex where one party is not willing to compromise.
We strongly advise you that pension sharing orders must be considered in your financial settlement if you decide to end your relationship with your partner. The courts are able to make an order for a pension to be shared or, alternatively, you can offset a pension fund value against other matrimonial assets that you attain. We can advise you on a third option known as earmarking. This is where a percentage of inheritance from the income of the pension is awarded to the other party.
