DIVORCE AND DISSOLUTION OF CIVIL PARTNERSHIP
We understand that relationship breakdowns are challenging and difficult, especially when children are involved. We take great care in listening to you to ensure we develop a clear understanding of your needs and the approach you wish to take. Our role is to provide practical, stress-free advice and guide you through the process without losing sight of achieving the best outcome. With our help and expertise, your divorce could be a straightforward procedure and often is when you and your spouse or civil partner are in agreement that the relationship has broken down.
Sorting out finances is often one of the main concerns for separating couples. Some financial circumstances can be straightforward while others can be more complicated. In those more complicated situations, disputes may arise. Achieving a fair divorce or dissolution of civil partnership settlement is complicated. As part of either of these proceedings, it is necessary for finances to be considered and finalised. A common misconception is that litigation is the only path to resolve disputed issues. There are other paths that we can consider with you, such as negotiation, mediation, arbitration or collaborative law.
Over the years our family lawyers have advised a high number of clients on divorce and separation. We have a specialism in high net worth cases, often with an international element, but we are equally able to advise clients who might not have as many assets and are based in the UK. Whatever your requirements, strategy is key, we have the skills you will need.
We would be more than happy to talk through your individual circumstances, including the possibility of alternatives to divorce and dissolution, the options regarding finance and how we can assist you in achieving a fair financial settlement.
