Divorce with financial and property claims

 

Disputes between couples have many complex and unpredictable implications. Financial and property claims within divorce cause a lot of distress and can have lasting consequences for the couple and children. We will help you to resolve matters in a positive and compassionate manner and will provide resourceful, sound and progressive advice. As expert solicitors we are used to solving disputes of all kinds, therefore we are best placed to work with you to get you the best possible outcome.

 

Resolving financial and property disputes when divorcing

 

If you would like to resolve financial and property matters with your former spouse once and for all, a financial order from the family court is required. Obtaining decree absolute does not mean that financial difficulties will be resolved immediately, and the financial claims resulting from the dissolution of the marriage will remain open.

 

We propose that at the same time as the divorce proceeds, you settle the financial entitlements that you and your spouse have in relation to cash, property, pensions, investments and assets of any kind as well any income claims (ie maintenance). This would ensure there is a financial clean break and that no further claims can be made by either side.

 

Financial Remedy

 

Financial remedy is the name of the court procedure between you and your partner to determine financial disputes. It is the mechanism by which the court deals with all forms of financial settlement, including land transactions or purchases, payment of lump amounts by one party to the other, maintenance orders (both for spouse and child), and how to split pensions.

 

At Fishers Solicitors we’re well equipped to deal with all financial and property claims within a divorce. Our process is simple, after an initial consultation we can plan the best way to handle all disputes in the most appropriate way.
