Negotiating a financial settlement following a relationship breakdown is a skilled and complex task. There is no set formula for an asset split, spousal maintenance and child support and each case will be resolved depending on its own facts and figures. The law is ever evolving in its interpretation and application but it will come down to one simple question. What is a fair split for this particular couple and their children? How much do they both reasonably need going forward and how should the income and assets be fairly shared between them?
There is also the issue as to whether certain types of assets are conisdered matrimonial or non matrimonial. This can have a huge impact upon the matrimonial pot.

For those that have managed to reach agreement we can ensure you end up with a court order reflecting that agreement and leaving you risk free from potential future claims.
