Financial Issues

A married couples’ financial relationship with each other continues after divorce unless it ended by a separate Court Order. If an agreement is reached by the couple directly, or through family mediation, it will not be legally binding unless it is converted into a Court Order. We can prepare Court Orders for submission to the Court on your behalf.

We can advise as to what would be a suitable financial settlement dependent upon the unique circumstances of the case and conduct negotiations on your behalf. If an agreement cannot be reached by negotiation we can issue Court proceedings for the Court to determine the outcome.

For further information read our guide to financial issues & divorce.
