Financial Issues

When a relationship breaks down one of the most difficult and contentious issues to come to terms with is the financial arrangements and how the family are going to be provided for now and in the future.

Within any separation we would always advise the parties to think carefully about the financial arrangements so that we can ensure that they are practical, sustainable and where possible achieve what is needed particularly where children are involved.

The area of financial provision upon the breakdown of the marriage can be quite complex, it can involve properties, business assets, pensions and many other considerations so it is vital that any individual going through the breakdown of a marriage seeks competent and independent legal advice to protect themselves and their family for the future.

At Morecrofts, our specialist Family Finance Team have over 40 years experience in this area of law and have a proven track record in securing appropriate financial provision for it’s clients and their families.

We will guide you through the processes we will keep you informed at all stages and consider in conjunction with you all of the options available to include mediation, collaboration, negotiation or ultimately court proceedings.
