Divorce financial settlements

During divorce proceedings, you will be required to come to an agreement on how to separate your finances from your ex-spouse’s. It is essential that you consult with an experienced divorce financial settlement solicitor before entering financial negotiations with your ex-partner.

Our solicitors are on hand to provide you with the support you require, whilst advising on how you can best safeguard your assets and finances. We can also provide tailored guidance should you be having any legal issues related to child maintenance or if you believe your ex-spouse has not accurately disclosed their financial situation.

Voluntary financial agreements

Our divorce settlement solicitors in Horsham will discuss what your options are, and if needed, can assist you in reaching a voluntary financial agreement. This process involves the employment of an alternative dispute resolution method such as mediation or collaborative law to help facilitate a mutually agreeable solution. During this process, we will support you throughout all negotiation talks that will occur, ensuring that your opinions and concerns are both heard and addressed.

Financial Orders

If you are unable to reach an agreeable divorce settlement with your partner through alternative dispute resolution, either due to prior conflict or because of the complexity of your case, it may be necessary to go to Court for a financial order.

A financial order is where the court will decide on the fairest way of splitting any marital assets as well as finances.

Financial orders cover a wide range of assets and finances, including:

  • Savings
  • Property
  • Pensions
  • Investments
  • Child maintenance payments

Our divorce financial settlement solicitors possess extensive knowledge and a proven track record in this area, so you can be sure that you are in the best possible hands.

Frequently asked questions

How does a divorce financial settlement work?

A divorce financial settlement is a legal arrangement made regarding a couple’s finances during a divorce.

When a marriage legally ends, the finances between the two ex-partners must be addressed to make sure that they are divided in a fashion that is deemed fair and equitable.

Settlements can cover multiple financial aspects, including savings, property, investments, pensions, spousal maintenance arrangements and child support.

However, if a settlement cannot be reached outside of court, there is the option of applying to the court for a Financial Order, in which the court will then decide how the finances and assets should be divided.

What will I be entitled to in a divorce settlement?

What individuals are entitled to during a divorce settlement is dependent on a number of factors. In typical England and Wales divorce settlements, under the rules of fairness, you may be entitled to a share of the ‘marital pot’ which includes any savings, investments, properties, and pensions that have been acquired or accrued during the marriage.

It is important to note that should the assistance of the court be required; it will operate with fairness being paramount.
