Division of debt on divorce
Debt management as part of a divorce settlement is a common issue handled by our divorce lawyers in Nottingham.
Debt, regardless of size or whether it is in joint or sole names, can easily become a contentious issue in a divorce financial settlement.
One such case involved a couple who had both individually and jointly owned marital assets. It was also revealed that they shared responsibility for some long-term debt incurred during their marriage.
The team assisted their client in obtaining a complete picture of the financial situation and confirming that both parties were liable.
After establishing these key details, discussions were held to determine how the debt would be cleared and to identify a fair financial settlement that was mutually agreeable under the circumstances.
Securing freezing orders for clients
When clients are concerned that their ex-partner is hiding or preparing to dispose of financial assets, they can apply to the family courts for a freezing order, also known as freezing injunction.
Our Nottingham team has assisted clients in Nottinghamshire in gathering the necessary documentation to demonstrate asset risk and successfully obtaining freezing orders to protect assets.
The freezing order issued by the family court legally prevents the other party from selling, hiding, or transferring assets before a specific time, which is usually when the divorce financial settlement is reached.
The Nottingham team helps many couples in Nottinghamshire reach amicable divorce settlements through divorce mediation.
This out-of-court approach to divorce assists couples in reaching agreements on the terms of their divorce, including child custody arrangements, interim financial arrangements, marital asset division, coparenting, as well as other practical aspects of divorce.
Stowe's divorce lawyers advise clients during mediation before turning the agreements reached into a legally binding document.
A number of our divorce lawyers at Stowe are trained mediators, and we have access to a nationwide network of professional mediators who can assist you in this area.
