Having the best divorce lawyer on your side is vital for international clients that may be able to obtain a divorce in more than one country.

If you are the breadwinner, our financial expertise will help you to produce realistic valuations of assets, particularly private company shareholdings. We can ensure that issues of liquidity are at the forefront of any negotiations and emphasise your critical role in maintaining the value of the business.
If your spouse holds most of the marital wealth, you may be worried that they will not disclose all the relevant assets or will provide a low valuation. Our solicitors are experts in non-disclosure cases and Vardags is unique in having an in-house forensic financial arm that are experts in valuations. Our financial experts are an integral part of our team, ensuring that we get the best results for our clients.
We can often assist clients that do not have access to the marital wealth and assets and who are worried about paying their day-to-day living expenses or legal fees. It is possible that your spouse will pay these, or it may be possible to secure a litigation loan. Our specialist lawyers can assist clients that are in this position.
