Financial Arrangements

financial arrangementsDo you need legal advice regarding financial arrangements following your separation or divorce?

Financial disputes most commonly arise among couples who are separating or divorcing. Negotiating such disputes can be exceptionally challenging and stressful.

At Elite Law, our goal is to help you decide how to divide the financial resources available in a way that enables you to get on with your life with as little disruption as possible. When you instruct us, we will sit down with, and find out what you want to achieve. We will then establish whether your aims are reasonable and begin discussions with the other side. We examine:

  • The family home — How is it to be dealt with? Should it be sold or transferred to one party?
  • Income — This may involve looking at how income can be boosted through maximising benefits such as working tax credits and child support entitlements.
  • Pensions — Sometimes a pension is worth more than the family home so its value should always be ascertained. If you have given up work to look after children, and you have a reduced pension as a result, it is important to take this into account.

We have a wealth of experience in resolving a wide range of financial disputes and represent clients throughout the UK.

Financial Arrangements Arising From Separation Or Divorce

Choosing to separate or divorce can be a difficult and emotional time and when disagreements over finances are involved, this can often exacerbate the situation.

If you are negotiating a separation agreement or divorce and either party owns a business, depends on the other party, has children who depend on them or wish to contest assets, then you will benefit from obtaining professional legal advice. With decades of expertise in this field, our family law solicitors are well qualified to assist.

We can advise in relation to the various financial claims available to couples upon a divorce, separation or dissolution of a civil partnership, including claims for periodical payments (maintenance), lump sums, pensions and orders in respect of property ownership. We are also able to advise and assist in relation to child maintenance and making claims through the Child Maintenance Service.

When working with you we will consider your financial needs and current circumstances and advise you on the best approach to the financial issues involved in your case, whether that be mediation, voluntary financial disclosure or an application to Court.

Should the case reach the Courts, there is a wide range of possible outcomes. Courts have the power to order parties to pay regular payments or lump sums to one another, transfer property and other assets and determine pension entitlements. We will work hard to make sure that such decisions are made with your best interests in mind. We have extensive experience of successfully working with high net worth clients as well as those of more modest means, so regardless of your personal circumstances we are confident that we will be able to assist.
