Whether divorcing or separating, the division of financial assets needs to be decided and ideally recorded in a written settlement . Any final settlement reached will have far-reaching consequences and will deal with income, properties, lump sum payments, pensions and other capital assets. It should therefore be professionally drawn up.
- Capital assets / property
Often, the main capital asset of the marriage will be the property which the family live in. Deciding on whether the property should be retained or sold is an important factor in any financial settlement.
When divorcing or separating, it may be difficult to meet outgoings on your own. There is often a need for monthly payments to bridge any shortfall. Equally, you may want to take steps to minimise claims on your income.
There are different methods of dealing with splitting pensions, as this can be a valuable asset to secure your future.
We are committed to guiding you through this process expertly and sensitively in order to help protect your interests and secure a future for you and your children.
