Divorce & Financial Settlement
With many years of working with families and couples going through a relationship breakdown, we have first-hand experience of the emotional and financial pressures you may be under. We will guide you through every aspect of the divorce process, addressing your concerns and bringing about an appropriate resolution.
If there are other relevant jurisdictions involved, we will swiftly advise you on the best course of action so the most appropriate jurisdiction can be secured.
From the outset, you will be given clear and realistic advice regarding the financial impact of your divorce, even in the most complicated of cases. We will explain the options available to you and advise you on likely outcomes. We will then help you to achieve a solution tailored to your own specific circumstances.
Advising on the resolution of financial issues upon divorce is our speciality. We take a constructive approach. It is important to us to help clients to maintain a civil and good working relationship with their former spouse, especially where there are children. The vast majority of our cases settle their financial arrangements out of court.
Nevertheless, there are times when litigation is necessary, and our track record at those times speaks for itself. For example
- We acted for the wife on her successful application to set aside a consent order compromising her claims upon divorce on the basis that her husband was guilty of material non-disclosure. The allegations of non-disclosure (which were proven) related to the existence and operation of international trusts. Our client was awarded a substantial additional sum, almost doubling her original award.
- We acted for the husband in circumstances where all of his substantial wealth was inherited, and obtained a very favourable judgment for our client.
