What's Involved with Finances after Divorce?
The process can be relatively straightforward, whereby direct negotiations between the two partners occur, or more complex, whereby Court proceedings are needed in order to divide assets amicably.
In either case, our Solicitors can guide you through the stages involved, and try to minimise conflict and upset for both parties at all times. Consideration is placed particularly on the future welfare of any children or dependants of the party.

Pensions after Divorce / Separation
On a divorce or separation, pensions are treated as an asset that can be divided between the parties. A pension is a valuable asset that you may have been building up during your whole working life. It is therefore important that on a divorce or dissolution the division of this asset is carried out in the most appropriate and effective way for both parties.
A summary of the current options available to you when dividing pensions, and the advantages and disadvantages of each, is illustrated in our free Pensions in Divorce / separation legal advice guide. You can discuss the different options available with one of our expert Lawyers.
