Financial Settlement following divorce/dissolution of a civil partnership

For most people, the end of a relationship is a challenging time. The prospect of resolving financial arrangements can be daunting and it can difficult to know how to take matters forward.

At Rix & Kay, we recommend taking legal advice at an early stage so that you know what your options are and what steps are available to you. Having this information early on can assist you when discussing matters with your spouse/partner.

Our Family Team have an exceptional reputation in managing financial disputes. Our solicitors specialise in high value and complex cases, including situations where business and commercial assets, inheritances, trust assets and assets held abroad are involved. Our Team also regularly assists those whose priority is ensuring that they, and any children, are properly housed.

There are a number of ways of dealing with the financial aspect of your relationship breakdown:

  • Direct discussions with your spouse, with legal advice as and when necessary
  • Negotiations through solicitors
  • Mediation
  • Collaborative Law
  • Arbitration
  • The Court Process

What ever method is used, we can advise you on the relevant law which sets out all the circumstances which need to be taken into account in deciding what is fair and reasonable for each party at the end of your marriage/civil partnership.

We can assist you to reach an early settlement thereby avoiding a costly and stressful experience of using the Court process. Alternatively, if a more robust approach is required, we can guide you through the Court process.
