Family Law Lawyers in Leicester | Experts in the Division of Assets
As compassionate family law lawyers in Leicester, we specialise in settling financial issues and the division of assets following a divorce or separation. We will advise you on your rights and the financial settlement you are likely to achieve, no matter how complex your finances are, so that you can negotiate effectively with your spouse and, if possible, reach an amicable agreement between you.
We can guide you through this process and provide you with practical, tailored advice on splitting the available capital, property and pensions to ensure a fair division of assets. As compassionate family law lawyers in Leicester, we can offer legal advice in relation to spousal maintenance and provision for children, too. The importance of obtaining a Consent Order will be discussed, incorporating any agreement reached.
Court rules do state that all parties should try to negotiate a division of assets settlement without going to court. The option of Family Mediation will be discussed, and the need to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) if you are unable to reach an agreement on how your finances should be split and a Court application is required.
We can support you through the mediation process and in the event that an agreement is reached, we are able to draft a Consent Order incorporating any agreement contained in the Memorandum of Understanding. If it is necessary to make an application to the court for a Financial Remedy Order (previously known as Ancillary Relief), then we will guide you through the process and provide you with professional and honest legal advice. The court has discretion over the redistribution of income and assets following a marriage breakdown, which makes it impossible to predict precisely what will be awarded.
Court proceedings can be expensive. As affordable Leicester divorce lawyers, our aim is to provide a cost-effective service, keeping you fully informed of the costs associated with your case.
