Divorce Financial Settlement Advice

Even during the most amicable of circumstances, reaching a financial settlement on divorce that works for all parties can feel daunting. Perhaps you have children, joint savings, shares, or financial interests that preceded the marriage. Similarly, you might have a shared mortgage, property portfolio, pension scheme, or inheritance to consider. You might not even be sure what assets, or debts, your spouse has accrued. We provide tailored and practical legal advice to guide you towards a suitable settlement.

We know that the welfare of your family comes first, so our divorce financial settlement solicitors will look to reach an informal agreement over child support and welfare before formalising this in a consent order.

Thursfields can help to untangle even the most complex cases of shared finances. We work tirelessly on your behalf to negotiate a fair outcome that secures your monetary prospects.

Frequently Asked Questions

A financial settlement on divorce is a legal agreement between two parties that makes clear the division of assets upon the dissolution of a marriage. Matrimonial assets listed in a financial settlement typically include such things as:

  • Savings
  • Properties
  • Vehicles
  • Pension schemes
  • Life insurance policies
  • Businesses
  • Details of child support payments
  • Spousal maintenance payments

While it is not advisable, you can divorce without a financial settlement. It is best practice to reach a financial settlement before, or during the divorce process. If you don’t reach a financial settlement, your former spouse could claim a share of subsequently gained assets or finances at any point after the divorce is finalised.

A fair financial settlement is generally assumed to mean an equal split on any monies or assets accrued by both parties during matrimony. However, the concept of fairness makes the reality of financial settlements more complex. For example, it’s common for one party to claim a greater proportion of total assets if they believe they’ve invested more of ‘their’ money. 

In short, there is no hard and fast rule to determine what constitutes a fair financial settlement, so this will need to be agreed by both parties. Specialist divorce settlement solicitors can help you ensure your interests are protected and that you walk away with what you deserve.
