    We can provide guidance on completing the divorce petition, through to negotiating financial settlements and child arrangement orders.

  • Family finances and financial divorce settlements

    Each marriage is different, and this is always reflected in your finances. Trying to unpick years of financial ties can feel overwhelming, and there are often complex financial issues that need to be resolved. Financial settlements (also known as divorce settlements) can cover everything from pensions, to investments, the family home, and even assets you owned before getting married; so getting expert financial and legal help is important if you’re looking to protect your assets while providing for your family once the divorce is finalised.

    We have experience in dealing with complex financial matters, property and estates; as well as catering to high net worth individuals and clients with assets abroad, so if you are looking to achieve a fair settlement while protecting your assets, our financial settlement lawyers and forensic accounting team can help you.

    Very few cases only involve legally ending a marriage or relationship. Arrangements usually need to be made for any children of the family along with finances including property, investments, businesses, pensions and income.

    Other factors affecting financial settlements include the length of the marriage, the standard of living during the marriage and the contribution made by each spouse to family life, assets and wealth.

    The same applies to child arrangements. Will they be managed between parents, or will involvement from the Child Maintenance Service be needed?

    Many clients return to us long after divorce when their circumstances change.  For instance, when amendments to maintenance are sought by a divorced parent who believes that the previously agreed level of maintenance is too low, or too high. On occasions, it may be possible for a former spouse to receive a large ‘capitalised’ sum of money in place of ongoing spousal maintenance to finally achieve a clean break.

  • Non-confrontational resolution of family disputes

    Alternative routes to court (arbitration, divorce mediation and collaborative law) encourage ex-partners to find solutions through dialogue, often reducing conflict and expense later.  That’s mainly due to litigation often being required when the parties are at odds on child arrangements (formerly known as child custody) and how finances should be divided.  Waiting for a hearing at the Family Court certainly won’t speed things up and will require more of your divorce lawyer’s time – which in turn will have a bearing on cost. It’s for these reasons that we recommend that family disputes be managed in a non-confrontational way. For more information on the methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that are open to you, we’ve outlined each in our guide to out of court settlements.

  • Cohabitation agreements

    Our family law solicitors have worked with couples across London who have opted to cohabit rather than marry. At the moment, the law does not provide the same protections to unmarried couples as it does to married couples – where the ‘common-law partner’ is actually a myth. This can lead to difficult challenges later should you decide to separate. At Stowe Family Law, we have cohabitation lawyers on hand to provide guidance on how you can legally protect yourselves, often preparing a cohabitation agreement that will outline what should happen when a joint property is sold, how bills should be divided, and how each partner will contribute, and much more. Whether you’re looking to move in together, or if you’re just looking for peace of mind on the handling of your joint assets, we can help. For more information on our support for cohabiting couples, read through our cohabitation guide.
