Agreeing financial arrangements for life after your divorce or civil partnership dissolution is one of the most complicated parts of separating. Mooney Everett Solicitors provides advice on all aspects of family law from our offices in Ormskirk.
Our team of experienced family solicitors can help you to understand your legal rights and obligations in relation to all of your financial assets. You will need to consider what will happen to:
- the family home and any other property you own;
- credit cards, overdrafts, debts and loans;
- money, savings and pension funds;
- vehicles and personal possessions; and
- your business interests.
The court has a wide range of powers when it comes to making a financial settlement. Options include ordering payment of a lump sum, the transfer of property, spousal maintenance orders and pension sharing orders. We will tailor our advice after a full review of your financial position, depending on your specific circumstances.
It is not always necessary to go to court. If you would both like to seek an amicable approach to reaching an agreement, you may wish to consider collaborative law as a way to negotiate an agreement on your financial settlement. This methods can often be quicker and more cost-effective than going to court.
We can advise you on:
- adopting a child;
- applying for divorce;
- arrangements for your children;
- changing a name;
- civil partnership dissolution;
- collaborative law;
- domestic violence;
- making a cohabitation agreement; and
- making a prenuptial agreement.
At Mooney Everett we explain things in plain English, free of any jargon. We will discuss all the options with you, outlining the costs involved from the outset, and we make sure that you are kept informed regularly.
