Financial Settlements

The financial consequences of separation or divorce can cause extreme stress and often hostility between couples.

The laws relating to the division of matrimonial property are complex. There are very few rules to say how property should be divided but simply numerous guidelines. Every case is different, and there is rarely a single correct outcome.

Ultimately, a judge may decide what division of property is fair and reasonable but an experienced Hethertons lawyer can advise you about the likely outcome and help you negotiate a settlement without costly court proceedings.

Hethertons’ team of expert family lawyers has extensive experience of financial settlements involving property, businesses and pensions and can help you resolve these issues, whether by negotiation, mediation or, as a last resort, through court proceedings.

We offer professional and independent advice about your entitlements and will help you find practical solutions to the division of your assets.
