When two parties cannot agree over money, possessions or property at the end of a marriage they may need to ask the courts to make these decisions for them. It can be a long process and having the right lawyer on hand for it can make it as painless as possible. We always aim to resolve the financial side of divorce through negotiation through correspondence and/or by referring you to a family mediator. If you are able to reach a settlement in this way, you will avoid the necessity of court proceedings which will save you money. We offer a number of services regarding divorce including assisting with the arrangements of financial matters in London.
The first requirement is that both parties file Form E Financial Statements before the FDA. The Form E is a lengthy document and you are required to attach supporting documentation to the form. We have vast experience in completing Form Es and can relieve the burden of completing this form by doing the work for you.
The Form E is intended to provide the parties with a clear picture of each other’s assets and it is not usually possible to reach a financial settlement without going through the process of full and frank financial disclosure.
There is duty for each party to provide full and frank financial disclosure during this process. If you are concerned that your spouse may try to hide assets or that you believe they have not disclosed all of their assets, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can determine the best course of action.
We will assist you in preparing for any hearings and arranging representation for you at the hearings.
Free consultation Via Zoom or Face to Face: We offer a 30-minute free consultation.
The factors which will be taken into consideration by the court when making its decision are commonly known as the section 25 checklist.
The first consideration is the welfare of any minor child of the family who has not attained the age of 18.
The court decides how to exercise its jurisdiction using the factors set out in section 25 as set out above. There is no hierarchy to these factors: in each individual case, different factors will carry a different weight.
The court must also consider whether to impose an immediate or deferred clean break so as to sever the financial obligations the parties have toward each other.
