Financial Settlements on Divorce

Financial settlements on divorce lawyer in ChesterfieldDivorce is one of the most stressful and emotionally difficult life events you may experience. Financial Settlements can often be the toughest part of your divorce and can be an extremely complex process.

There are a number of ways in which a financial settlement can be achieved. You can either reach an amicable agreement between yourselves, engage in a full and frank voluntary disclosure through solicitors or you can apply to the Court for their assistance in achieving a resolution. The aim, once a settlement has been achieved, is to have this recorded within a Consent Order. This is then legally binding on you and your partner.

A range of factors are considered when deciding the settlement terms, including but not limited to;

If you are able to reach an agreement with your partner either directly or as a result of a voluntary disclosure, then you may not need to attend Court.

If an agreement is reached in this way, a Consent Order will be drafted. It will then be sent to the Court to be checked by a Judge to ensure that it is fair and reasonable. It is then endorsed by them to make it a legally binding Order

If an agreement cannot be reached in this manner, then it will be necessary to apply to Court to achieve a resolution.
