Introduction to finances upon divorce
When meeting new clients who are facing marital difficulties we will generally discuss three main issues: the children, the divorce and the financial arrangements. The uncertainty of your future financial security and protection adds significant stress to an already difficult time. One needs to consider what level of income and capital should be provided for the less wealthy spouse, for the benefit of any children, and what degree of provision would be optimal. A number of options are available to parties looking to resolve the financial arrangements with their spouse, including mediation and dealing with your case on a collaborative basis. While these options may often be appropriate, this will not always be the case and your own solicitor will seek to negotiate with your spouse’s solicitor. If this is not possible you will most likely be advised to apply to begin financial proceedings at Court. For more details please refer to our guide to finances upon divorce.
