We will work with you towards a life beyond your marriage. Our commitment to empowering our clients to build up their independent lives is unwavering, and we will fight tooth and nail to safeguard your future.
When you are going through the upheaval of divorce, it’s more important than ever to feel assured that your financial security is not in jeopardy. Whether you are the breadwinner, the homemaker or have substantial assets in your own name, our unique combination of commercial understanding and legal expertise will help you to obtain the best possible settlement from your divorce.
It is unacceptable for someone to misrepresent their finances in court to avoid giving their partner their fair share. Our financial forensic team will leave no stone unturned to track down and value your spouse’s assets.
You may be in a position where your partner has substantial funds but you do not have access to money to support yourself or afford legal fees. If this is the case, we may be able to apply for interim maintenance and provision for legal fees so that you will not be left stranded after your relationship has broken down.
We understand that your child’s best interests come first. At Vardags, we work closely with you to find pragmatic solutions for your childcare needs and achieve a fair child maintenance arrangement. Should you or your partner wish to live abroad with your child, Vardags has substantial experience dealing with leave to remove applications and will work with you to get the best outcome for your child.
In the majority of cases, the child contact arrangements that work the best are those which parents agree on together. Our lawyers are adept at taking a conciliatory approach to proceedings to settle matters as smoothly as possible. Reaching an agreement this way is, however, not always possible. We never shy away from tenacious litigation when necessary in order to protect your child’s best interests.
No one should live in fear of a spouse or ex-partner. If you have been subjected to physical, emotional, or financial abuse, or feel vulnerable to such abuse, the family courts will seek to protect you. Vardags advises on domestic abuse and harassment matters with care and sensitivity. We have extensive experience in non-molestation and occupation order applications and act quickly and with the strictest confidentiality, your safety being our utmost priority.
If you are subjected to physical violence, or the threat of it, you should contact the police immediately.
