Finances following divorce or separation

Resolving financial issues can often be one of the most unsettling parts of the divorce process. This is especially the case when communications have broken down or a couple have very different ideas as to what the right outcome should be.

“The firm provides extensive support, and advice is always clear and accurate.”

When critical judgments need to be made about your future it is invaluable to have the benefit of reliable expert advice and representation. Our experienced family solicitors include specialists working exclusively in the area financial issues on divorce.

The Stephens Scown family team is independently ranked as the best solicitors for divorce and family law in the region.

We are able to offer advice on best outcome as well as the appropriate strategy towards achieving it. We find that good advice can empower clients towards achieving a financial settlement. This can help maintain good relations for the sake of any children and restrict costs.

Our expertise includes issues relating to:

  • Division of property and savings
  • Maintenance claims and their variation
  • Child maintenance
  • Pension issues
  • Pre-marital and inherited wealth
  • Farming divorces or cases with a rural element
  • Complex corporate structures
  • Trusts (both onshore and offshore)
  • High value family or business assets
  • International and jurisdictional disputes
  • Freezing injunctions
