Divorce Financial Settlement
Resolving financial issues after a separation, while unpleasant, is a crucial part of the process. Our solicitors are trained in handling these matters deftly, and can reach a settlement that’s fair, allowing you to get on with life again.
At Davis Blank Furniss our solicitors, including head of family law Caroline Bilous and divorce specialist Kirsty Morbey, are experts in the legal issues which surround the breakdown of a relationship. You can trust us to work things out properly.
Fair, considerate solicitors
While you’re dealing with the emotional impact of your separation, let us sort out all the practical details, like where you’ll live, maintenance, and how to divide your belongings.
We aim to resolve everything amicably, which should prevent expensive Court proceedings, as our experienced solicitors negotiate a suitable settlement.
How are my earnings taken into account in a divorce settlement?
To ensure a fair settlement, we make enquiries about many factors:
- Domestic and financial contributions to the marriage
- Past, current and future earnings
- Assets and property
- Debt or financial responsibility
- Length of the marriage
- Standard of living during marriage
Children are always our first consideration, to ensure their welfare. We also look at the full extent of assets involved, from property to pensions. We consider the circumstances on a case-by-case basis.
For example, if either partner is in a new co-habiting relationship, their new partner’s financial affairs may be taken into account.
We appreciate it’s an unpalatable process, but with the right help and guidance, we can make it easier for you.
