Financial Settlement

We fully understand that after a divorce or separation, you wish to ensure that you and any children are well protected and comfortable financially.


We will assist you in reaching a settlement that is realistic and enables you to retain sufficient assets, pension rights and income to provide you upon separation and for your future life.


There is no mathematical formula that can be applied. Each case is individual. We will look at your particular circumstances and try and advise as best as we can the type of settlement you can achieve. If all relevant information is not available, then disclosure will be sought.


We always encourage parties to settle either through negotiation, mediation or collaboration. This will ensure all is concluded amicably and cost-effectively.


However, where an amicable settlement is impossible, we ensure that your case is prepared for a contested hearing to achieve the best possible result for you and your children. Our specialist team of lawyers work with the best professionals in their field to ensure that an all-around specialist service is offered to you.
