Financial Disputes and Settlements
For many couples, one of the most worrying aspects of divorce or separation is the division of the finances and the possible consequences for themselves and their children in the future. If you are divorcing or separating and would like advice and assistance in relation to the various financial applications and claims that may be relevant to your situation, then our family team can help.
We have wide experience in dealing with all levels of financial settlements and disputes, including assisting high net worth families and individuals with complex financial arrangements including family businesses and offshore investments.
We can advise and assist you throughout all stages of financial applications and negotiations, from ensuring that you obtain appropriate financial disclosure, to drafting a court order embodying an agreement. If an agreement cannot be reached and a court application proves necessary, we will advise and assist you through the various stages of the court process. Where appropriate, we engage the assistance of other experts to assist with issues such as valuations of property, business assets and overseas assets as well as the sharing of pensions. We can also assist you in obtaining orders to prevent the dissipation of assets or to ensure that assets are fully disclosed.
