  • Maintenance payments

    We help you understand child and spousal maintenance law.

    A common question our specialist divorce solicitors are asked is “Will I receive maintenance after divorce?” This can be a very worrying issue when splitting up with your partner.

    Maintenance payments can be divided into two areas:

    1. maintenance for financial support for the children, and
    2. maintenance for the spouse (husband/wife)

    Whether you receive maintenance after divorce or have to pay it, will depend on the overall circumstances of your case. As well as a comparison of incomes we will also look at things like capital and savings as well the actual needs, or the  future earning potential.

    Talk to our team of specialist family solicitors about managing your maintenance payments.

  • Dividing the family home in divorce

    The family home should not be looked at in insolation from all the other family assets.

    Your home is the centre of family life. Some of the most upsetting questions in divorce are what will happen to the family home and how are other financial assets such as savings divided in the divorce or separation process? Deciding who gets the house in a divorce can be even more complicated when there are children. This is an area that our family solicitors are adept at dealing with.

    Whether you and your partner have an amicable split or not, our team of divorce lawyers can help you come to an agreement on your home, other properties or indeed any of your jointly owned assets.

    Contact us today and we’ll help find a fair way to divide assets in divorce and will be there to support you with specialist advice at this difficult time.

  • Pensions in divorce

    Helping you understand divorce pension rights.

    The arrangements and issues surrounding pensions in divorce are naturally complex. You should not have to worry about how you’ll manage financially in retirement. This applies whether you’ve been bringing up children, building a career, or both. So how do you settle on a fair split of pensions in divorce?

    Divorce pension rights can be extremely complex. As your pension may be the most valuable asset in your marriage, you’ll need to consider the split carefully.

    We work closely with pension actuaries to carefully analyse each element of the ‘pension pot’ to make sure it is correctly valued. This will give you more confidence to plan your future independently. Contact us today to understand how we can help you secure your pension.
