Dividing Finances during divorce & seperation

Our divorce solicitors are experts on all financial aspects of divorce, dissolution and separation, including the division of family assets, trusts, company and partnership interests, periodic and lump sum payments, property and pension issues. Even if you have agreed these matters, or if there is nothing to share, it is important that matters are formalised so that financial claims are not revived in the future.
