Divorce, separation and civil partnership dissolution
Financial Relief upon Separation
For any separating couple, sorting out finances and reaching any financial settlement can be one of the biggest challenges to overcome, causing untold stress, anxiety and untold uncertainty such as to make life difficult, not knowing for sure what the future may bring.
Understandably many issues require careful thought and consideration – you may be anxious about what is to happen to the family home, what is going to happen to any savings you both may have, you may fear that you are going to lose the entirety of any pension pot you have managed to accumulate or concerned that your ex-partner may try and move his pension so as to defeat any claim that you may make against the same. You may also be fearful as to how you will now manage financially following separation.
Without a doubt, these concerns and others, and the uncertainty that goes with them can cause fear and anxiety such as to cause illness and the impact can be felt to not just you but those that care for you be it, family or friends.
At Prism Family Law, we understand that you will demand clear legal advice and help about your options for reaching agreement about the family finances and that you require help so that you can make informed choices.
At Prism Family Law, we will always advise you about how best to go about reaching a financial settlement including the availability of family mediation.
In some cases, when it is clear that no negotiation is going to bring about a fair outcome, it may be necessary to go to court and apply for Financial Relief. We will only advise you to issue proceedings when we believe that this is in your best interests, and whilst this may sound bizarre, in a lot of cases issuing court proceedings for relief can, in fact, be the most efficient and cost-effective way to progress your case and interests but is not automatically recommended unless it is deemed necessary to your case.
In all cases, we would recommend that you seek legal advice and help in relation to the circumstances of your case. At Prism Family Law, we are legal experts in seeking and obtaining a divorce and financial orders and you will always find us approachable, straightforward in our advice and never judgemental.
We always offer free initial appointments so that potential clients can consider all the available options open to them without obligation to pursue any course recommended.
