The thought of having to provide for your future and the future of your family after a divorce or dissolution is a daunting prospect. We will guide you through this maze giving you realistic advice and strong representation throughout.
In spite of finance division being an inevitable part of the divorce or dissolution proceedings, they are looked at separately. We will attempt to reach a financial agreement on your behalf and will always try to avoid having to go to court if at all possible. As we are members of the Resolution Collaborative Law Scheme we are committed to the constructive resolution of disputes. Collaborative Lawyers can engage in a procedure whereby each spouse can have a meeting with the other and have their solicitors present to represent them at these meetings. The purpose of the meeting is to reach an early and sensible conclusion to any finance issues without the need to go to court.
We also encourage the use of mediation between separating couples, as do the court. The mediation process involves spouses sitting with an independent mediator in order to reach an agreement and to save any contested issues being dealt with by the court.
Sometimes, this is not always realistic and a court application may be inevitable. If this is the case, you can rest assured that we will provide you with the best possible representation at court and we will strive to gain the best outcome on your behalf.
