Financial Settlements

Whether you are separating or divorcing, married or not there are usually always financial matters to consider. For this reason it is important that when considering formal separation or divorce, you get expert legal advice from a Family Law solicitor specialising in financial settlements during separation at an early stage.

If you understand your legal rights and the options available to you, you are in a better position to protect your interests, assets and finances.. With advice from one of our Family Law solicitors you will have the best chance of achieving a favourable financial settlement that you are happy with and that provides for your future and that of any children you may have. Our team are recognised by the Legal 500 2018 for their expertise.

Our Family Law solicitors are experienced in advising clients on protecting, and negotiating in relation to, finances and assets including:

If you feel you have reached an agreement with your partner already, then we can assist you in having an agreement incorporated into a legally binding document. Otherwise people can change their minds and make a financial claim later!
