West Barnes divorce solicitors for financial settlements

In any separation, if a married couple decides to divorce, they must address financial matters related to the divorce. Typically, a financial consent order needs to be agreed by both parties to ensure a clean break. This order ensures neither party can make future claims against the other, whether in life or after death.

Before negotiating a financial settlement with your ex-spouse, seek legal and financial advice from a solicitor to ensure the best possible outcome. While negotiating a financial settlement can be challenging, organising details such as property, pensions, and marital and business assets with a consent order will protect you financially moving forward.

Once an agreement is reached, it is crucial to ensure it is binding and enforceable. Many people agree to terms informally but never formalise them, leaving them vulnerable if their ex-spouse fails to uphold their side of the agreement. This is why a consent order is essential to protect against future financial claims.

Questions our Raynes Park divorce solicitors are frequently asked

You can start a divorce by preparing a divorce application online along with your marriage certificate and the correct court fee. The divorce application needs to be completed accurately.

Firstly, don’t panic! You will have received a copy of the divorce application and instructions to register with the Court online portal so that you can respond to the divorce application which has to be completed within a certain period of time. Before completing the response it is important that you obtain legal advice and understand what the next steps in the divorce will be.

You may have taken the decision not to divorce based on religious or cultural reasons.  If so, you can apply for a Judicial Separation through a procedure similar to a divorce. Obtaining a Judicial Separation means that you are no longer obliged to live together however does not ultimately bring the marriage to an end. You will still also be able to request the Court to approve a financial settlement that you may reach with your spouse.

If you own the family home together with your spouse or partner you cannot stop them from entering the property except by getting a court order. The locks on the property should not be changed and if they are, you must provide them with a key. However, if you are being subjected to violent or aggressive behaviour from your partner or spouse you may be in a position to apply to the Court for an Order to remove them from the property.

This is unlikely to have an impact on financial issues, however it is important that you seek legal advice before taking such steps.  By moving out of the property you may no longer have access to your personal belongings e.g.  important financial documents and there may be a risk that your spouse may not cooperate which will prolong the divorce.

    Do you need a no-fault divorce solicitor in Raynes Park?

    Couples going through separation can now seek a divorce, civil partnership dissolution, or legal separation without assigning blame for the breakdown of their relationship.

    Since April 6, 2022, the implementation of no-fault divorce in the UK, initially announced in February 2019, has ushered in long-awaited reforms to a legal landscape unchanged since 1973.

    Under this law, separating couples are no longer obligated to prove one of the 'five facts' to establish grounds for divorce, signalling a shift towards a more constructive approach to separation.

    A no-fault or no-blame divorce offers a simpler and more amicable approach to separation. Couples can file for divorce or civil partnership dissolution without attributing blame to their former partner to prove the irretrievable breakdown of the relationship.
