Financial Settlements in St Helens

Agreeing the division of assets during a divorce can be a stressful experience that needs careful negotiation to reach a final divorce financial settlement.

We Could Help You Reach a Settlement Without The Need For Court

At Hattons Solicitors we can help you to reach the terms of a financial settlement, without the need for the Courts. This can take place at any time during the divorce, but transfer of property or lump sums will only take place when the divorce nisa has been granted.

However if no agreement can be made it may be necessary to make an application for settlement with the Court to resolve the issues.

Financial Orders Must Consider Particular Points

The Court has the power to make financial orders, as it sees fit by considering the following list:

  • Present and future needs
  • Resources and earning capacity of both parties
  • Age
  • Length of their marriage
  • Contributions of both to family finances

It is important to note that the court will always give primary consideration to the welfare of any children.

A divorce can make for a very stressful time for everyone involved but it is often necessary to enable both parties to have a happier future. However, if there is a chance of mediation to resolve matters, and we can arrange for you to have access to this service.
