If you are dealing with relationship problems the emotional strain can be enormous. You may find that you need urgent action taken to protect your financial position. It can be difficult for those experiencing the breakdown of a relationship to think of all the practical issues that need to be resolved in relation to individual and joint finances and any property owned by one or both of you.
This is when you need expert advice from a Solicitor who can ensure that your position and long term future is protected in relation to issues such as.
- short & long term financial support for you
- financial support for your children
- who pays for what
- what happens to the house
- what happens to savings, investments, pensions and other assets
These complex issues can be resolved by
- negotiation with your former Partner and their Solicitor
- a Collaborative Law approach
- our working with your Accountant or an independent Financial Adviser
- the Courts who, should, in any event be asked to make an Order based on any settlement arrived at by the above means
