Financial Claims in Divorce

Dividing finances is often the most complex process of the divorce, especially when dealing with significant wealth. Each case is entirely unique and we make sure to tailor our approach accordingly to meet your specific financial needs and protect your future.

If you are going through a divorce then it is likely that you will also need to resolve the question of how your finances will be divided. It is important to resolve financial claims at the same time as your divorce so that you have certainty for the future.

Financial claims can be made with respect to your capital, pension and income, and they can be made at any time, even after obtaining a decree absolute. To avoid potentially lengthy litigation, or claims opening up further down the line, it is best to agree and reach a settlement as early as you realistically can.

We can help you on matters involving complex trusts, tax and private companies with international issues. Whatever your situation, we will seek to reach a negotiation promptly and practically for you. Our family law team have represented clients in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, acting for successful entrepreneurs, professionals, international sports people, and other high net worth individuals.
