Financial Matters

When you are going through a divorce or separation, financial concerns are likely to be one of your main worries.

Issues such as how you are going to pay the mortgage, ongoing maintenance payments and other such matters can become overwhelming. We have helped many people, like you, going through similar circumstances and can advise you on the best way to proceeds and explain exactly how the financial aspects of a divorce or separation can be dealt with.

During a divorce, the courts have wide ranging powers to make a variety of orders that can include:

  • Periodical payments (maintenance or alimony)
  • Secured provision (maintenance that is charged against an asset)
  • Lump sum (a cash payment)
  • Transfer of property
  • Pension attachment and pension sharing (except upon decree of judicial separation)

Our specialist family law and divorce solicitors will be able to help you with your legal requirements.
