When spouses separate the financial matters must be resolved. This covers family businesses, investments and pensions as well as property. Pension rights can be shared between spouses.
We advise as to appropriate levels of maintenance for children and whether maintenance for a spouse is appropriate. If a settlement cannot be negotiated then an application to Court must be made for the Court to decide on the outcome. That process can take 9 - 12 months.
We regularly deal with self employed clients and spouses.
