How are we able to protect your assets?

A financial remedy order can contribute to a clean break in the relationship by assisting the division of the funds and assets that have accumulated throughout the marriage. You may want to speak with us in order to find out whether this course of action is appropriate for your circumstances.

In general, if you are looking to gain ownership of a property, set up a regular payment schedule, gain a share of your previous partners pension or obtain a lump sum of money, then a financial remedy order might be suitable for you.

Interestingly, it is important to note that applying for a financial remedy order is separate from normal divorce proceedings. It can take between 6 to 12 months to finalise, as the court seeks to gain a full and deep understanding of the financial situations of both parties in order to comfortably make a decision that is fair and right.

How does the process work?

It involves several court meetings and hearings, the first taking place approximately 12 to 16 weeks after the order has been initially submitted. There are a certain amount of financial statements and paperwork that need to be filed by both sides and this is where our expert team can assist with ensuring that delays are quickly dealt with and organized.

There are many considerations that the court will base their final decision upon. These include any children under the age of 18, income, potential future earnings of both parties, the living conditions throughout the marriage, disabilities, age and any other factors that can play a part in the welfare of each individual.

An impartial and fair decision will be decided upon and ruled, so both sides of the party can continue on with their divorce proceedings and onto a new life. For those of you who want to have a clean, unbiased and honest division of funds and marital assets, we suggest that a financial remedy order might be of use to you.
