Financial proceedings in divorce and dissolution take place separately from the divorce or dissolution proceedings and at a time when emotions are running high. The process can seem complex and difficult to understand.
When you work with Mackrell Turner Garrett’s Family Law team we can help to clarify issues, resolve difficulties and achieve mutually acceptable outcomes.
As members of Resolution, we are ideally placed to help you and your former partner negotiate an agreement, following full disclosure of your respective financial positions. In these circumstances, we can incorporate the agreement into a court document in order to apply for a final and binding court order.
If you cannot negotiate a settlement, the court can decide matters for you, taking into account all the circumstances of the case and the welfare of any children.
However financial arrangements are made, we can advise you on your options, carry out negotiations and represent you in court proceedings.
We’ll consider issues including whether the family home or business should be sold, how any proceeds should be divided or whether a transfer of the ownership would be possible. We will also deal with all other assets forming part of the matrimonial “pot”, including pensions, cash savings or investments and vehicles.
If you need help deciding whether you can apply for a financial order, we can advise you on your options and even if you think you can reach an agreement with your former partner, our advice can help to ensure your interests are protected.
