Information on financial settlements from Healys

8th March 2015 by


For many couples the most complex aspect of relationship breakdown is the negotiation of a financial settlement on divorce or civil-partnership dissolution.

Healys’ divorce solicitors in Brighton and London have all the necessary expertise to advise clients on the best course of action whether they are making a claim for ancillary relief or defending a claim made against them. We have helped many clients negotiate settlements without the need to appear in court, but we have also acted for clients involved in High Court financial claims and in cross border divorce involving multiple jurisdictional location of assets.

In many cases, while the dissolution of a marriage or civil-partnership can be fairly straightforward, it is the divorce financial claim which becomes the arena for disputes and conflict. This has the potential to become a prolonged, drawn-out issue unless matters are handled expediently and efficiently.

To help divorcing couples understand some of the pitfalls of financial settlements and how the law affects these negotiations, Healys has produced a number of articles looking at financial claims arising from relationship breakdown.
