When divorcing, settling financial arrangements known as financial remedies can be more complex than the divorce itself. With offices in Leeds, Harrogate and York, our specialist financial remedies solicitors are some of the most respected in the UK – and we work for clients regionally, nationally and internationally.

The starting point for sorting out your finances – whichever route is taken, is generally a disclosure of each person’s assets. These can include your home, income, other properties, savings, shareholdings, pensions and trusts – whether in the UK or abroad.

The court has a wide discretion in applying the law and the family assets are shared to achieve fairness – with the first consideration being the welfare of any children.

Because every case is individual, there is no set formula for how financial assets are shared and an unequal division may be required to meet the needs of one of the parties and the children. It might be that a ‘clean break’, which ends the monetary obligations between couples, is appropriate. Alternatively some form of maintenance payments, whether ongoing or for a fixed period of time, may be more suitable.
