Family Property

We can help you make sense of your finances after a relationship breakdown whether you are married, in a civil partnership or cohabiting with your partner.

Negotiated settlements can offer significant benefits.

If you are married or in a civil partnership then provided your divorce or dissolution proceedings are underway any agreement about family property can be backed up with a "consent order", which a court order based on your agreement and made with the approval of a Judge. Once approved, a consent order will have the force of law and so it can be relied on in the future.

In the case of any property, such as the former matrimonial home, savings, pensions, a financial portfolio or anything else of value that has been generated during your marriage or civil partnership, we can advise you and negotiate a settlement reflecting a fair division of the available assets.

Full Frank and Clear Financial Disclosure – so that you can have a complete picture of the matrimonial assets there will need to be open and honest financial disclosure from both parties so that you will have a complete picture of the value of all of the family assets before you come to a final settlement. This can be a daunting process and we can help you get organised and read through the lines.
