A financial settlement can be reached within divorce proceedings or judicial separation proceedings. Alternatively, a deed of separation which reflects the date of separation and the parties intention to divorce in 2 years time will set out the financial agreements reached at the time of separation, which are then put into effect.
When considering financial matters between parties, the first step is always to seek full and frank disclosure of both parties financial circumstances. It is extremely important that we have an understanding which is accurate of the financial circumstances of both parties. Once that information has been received we look to advise and negotiate a sensible settlement taking into account various factors.
At Band Hatton Button we have a strong team who specialise in financial matters and who will be happy to assist in negotiating financial settlements.
