Financial Matters / Financial remedy
When a relationship breaks down and legal proceedings are taken, then one of the most important issues is to deal with the financial aspects of your relationship. This includes dealing with property, lump sums, maintenance, pensions, etc. These aspects can be very complex and costly. It is important that you obtain the right advice in dealing with these matters so as to ensure that, if they are not agreed, you have clear advice and your interests are properly represented through negotiations to a final hearing.
The Court requires the parties to attend Mediation before any application to resolve financial matters is made, but we can assist you in preparing for Mediation and deal with any discussions that have taken place. If Mediation fails then we can act on your behalf in dealing with your financial remedy application.
There are also other methods of dealing with financial remedy such as Arbitration which may be a quicker method of dealing with matters by which you both agree to be bound.
If an agreement can be reached following disclosure of all assets, then this can be embodied into a consent order which can be approved by the Court to finalise matters.
