Matrimonial Finance Solicitors
Family Law Services
There are often a number of financial issues to resolve following the breakdown of a marriage/civil partnership. The division of capital assets, pensions, family businesses, trusts, property at home and abroad and financial support for you and your children must all be considered; and at what is already an emotionally charged time, can quickly become impossible for a couple to come to an agreement between themselves.
In such circumstances, the family team at O’Donnell Solicitors have the expertise to advise you.
There are a number of ways you can resolve financial matters following a divorce/dissolution such as mediation, voluntary negotiations or court proceedings. Whichever route you take, it is important that the agreement is recorded into a court order (Consent Order) or a Separation Agreement so the arrangements cannot be challenged or reneged upon at a later date.
Each party is under a duty to provide full financial disclosure so that we can advise you on a financial settlement. This area of law is complex, highly discretionary and fact-specific so expert specialist advice is very important. Each case is decided on its own unique facts.
Our expert solicitors can help guide you through this difficult time, not only representing your best interests but also providing the knowledge and support you need to move on with your life.
In addition, we have strong relationships with other trusted professionals including accountants, tax experts, financial advisors, pension experts and lawyers abroad, who we can call upon to assist in achieving a practical and cost-effective solution to the division of matrimonial and civil partnership assets.
Our divorce law experts are accredited by Resolution to advise clients in complex financial provision matters on divorce.
