Divorce & Financial Matters
The finances of a couple can be complicated. Sorting out who gets what can be stressful and may at times seem unfair.
Financial arrangements arising out of divorce, separation agreements or an annulment can be complicated. Deciding how your marital assets are shared can be stressful and may at times seem unfair.
There are effectively three options open to you.
- Allow the courts to decide how your assets, including your home and pension funds, should be apportioned, and how much maintenance should be paid.
- Reach an agreement with your spouse either direct or with the assistance of legal advisers or mediators.
- You and your partner agree to a Collaborative Law approach with your lawyers to resolve issues, without going to Court and agree to meet in ‘4 way’ face to face meetings (2 of you and 2 lawyers).
