Financial Matters

Whether you are contemplating ending your marriage, civil partnership or stopping living with your long-term partner, it is essential that you seek advice from a specialist Family Law team.
At Wansbroughs, our solicitors offer a wealth of experience in dealing with all aspects of financial resolution following the breakdown of a relationship. We are able to work closely with other Lawyers within our firm where additional expertise may be required therefore affording the client in-depth expertise.
The financial resolution process requires each party providing their respective legal advisors with full and frank disclosure of their income, capital and pension provisions. Once this information is available, we will be able to advise you as to the division of the assets. If your financial circumstances are more complicated, it may be necessary to seek the advice of outside professionals, for example Valuers, Accountants, Actuaries, to assist in the overall process. We will then prepare the necessary documentation to reflect the agreed settlement.
Going to Court may be the only option to settle financial issues but there are alternative ways in which separating couples may resolve their financial issues which include mediation and collaborative family law which is a new approach to separation and divorce and is described in more detail on the attached pages.
The members of the Family Team at Wansbroughs are experienced lawyers trained in promoting a constructive non-adversarial approach to negotiations and resolving financial issues.
If you would like to speak with one of our team, we offer initial advice appointments. For more information, please telephone 01380 733300 or 01225 896100. If you think you might qualify for Legal Aid we can help - please let us know when you telephone.
