Financial Arrangements & Disputes

When you need to resolve a financial dispute during Divorce or Dissolution of Civil Partnership proceedings it is very important to first spend some time deciding which process would most suit your situation.

The choices available to you are as follows, all of which the Solicitors at Howlett Clarke can assist you with:

  • Collaborative law
  • Solicitor led negotiation
  • Arbitration
  • Litigation
  • Mediation

In Brighton and Hove all options are open to our clients. Our solicitors can advise you on the pros and cons of each method because every situation is different. You will of course be anxious about the outcome; how you will provide accommodation for your children or ensure you have a pension for your retirement.  Your choice of process however will affect the costs you have to pay, how quickly the matter is resolved and how amicable you are with your ex-partner at the end of the process.

If you need to issue proceedings at Brighton family court Howlett Clarke can help you prepare the necessary documentation, advise you on fair settlement terms and represent you at court if required. Hannah Millrain and Henna Ehsan have many years of experience in dealing with financial issues, to include obtaining pension sharing orders and valuing assets.

The Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 section 25 details those aspects of a case which the court must take into account when deciding how to divide up the assets of a divorcing couple. For those couples seeking a financial solution within dissolution of civil partnership proceedings schedule, 5 of  the Civil Partnership Act provides the relevant guidance. The first consideration will be given to the financial wellbeing of any children under the age of eighteen, thereafter  issues to consider  include the length of the relationship, the health of yourself and your ex-partner and your respective earning capacities.

Whatever your query both Hannah Millrain and Henna Ehsan are happy to provide you with clear, accurate and individually tailored legal advice.
