Divorce, ancillary reliefs, and financial arrangements

When two people get married, or become civil partners, they acquire financial claims against each other. Often the most complicated part of a divorce lies in resolving these financial claims and achieving a financial settlement.

This process of dividing up your financial assets with your former partner can be unsettling and upsetting and one of the most difficult aspects for clients going through a divorce is that they are forced to make some incredibly difficult decisions with long-term implications at a time they are least emotionally able to do so.

There are number of different issues to consider during a divorce, so it is important you work with specialist family lawyers. This will give you peace of mind that they will have your best interests at heart, so you can trust that they are advising you on the best approach to take.
