If you’re going through a divorce, or you’re dissolving a civil partnership, dealing with finances can be quite the challenge.
It’s essential that both you and your partner’s finances are properly managed to help come to a fair outcome for everyone involved. This is especially true if there are children involved.
If you’re going through a legal separation such as a divorce or dissolving of a civil partnership, you may be worried about how it might affect you financially. You may also be concerned whether or not your partner is going to agree to your financial plans going forward.
That’s where we come in. Our team of expert solicitors have worked with couples from all financial backgrounds to deal with delicate financial agreements during separation. We know that the best solution is the fairest solution. That’s why we aim for just that – the fairest solution for all parties involved.
When it comes to the financial part of divorce, every couple is different. Some are happy to split money and property equally, others want to come to a specific arrangement.
Relationships are as unique as people are. Some have one breadwinner, some have two and these can all change over time. If you and your partner have tried to share financial responsibilities equally, you might think that you’re splitting costs right down the middle.
However, that’s usually not the case. On close inspection, you may find that there are differences between who pays what, and when. Some couples have unwritten agreements – “You pay council tax, I’ll pay for the car”, and others just do things ad hoc.
However you’ve split your finances over the years, we’ll help you come to arrangement that is fair to everyone – taking into account children, animals and property.
We can also help with:
- Pension splitting and sharing
- Child support agreements
- Help with mortgages or other joint financial agreements
- Life insurance
A proper financial agreement clearly show who’s responsible for what during the separation and after. For example, if there are children involved, a support agreement will need to be mapped out. One of the partners will then aid the other with fixed and agreed upon monthly payments to help with food, clothes and home running costs.
