Financial

For some couples, resolving issues relating to finance when going through a divorce can be complex and in some circumstances, fiercely contested. It is therefore imperative that you receive the right advice at the right time.

Following a divorce settlement solicitors, the Court can Order a Financial settlement which will either be a Capital Provision whereby the maintenance is ongoing over a number of years or an Order for one payment (which can be in instalments) but this completely ends the financial relationship between the couple.

The Court can use various methods to make the Orders mentioned above and therefore each case is considered on a case by case basis. The Court will take into account your age, the length of marriage, the standard of lifestyle, earnings, financial needs and responsibilities, contributions made and the potential benefits that are lost on divorce.
