Money & Property Disputes

Where parties are married the Court has a wide discretion to redistribute income and assets. This will depend upon a number of factors such as: –

Orders that can be made through the Courts can include periodical payments or maintenance payments, lump sum payments, transfer of property, pension sharing and attachments; either party to the marriage can make an application for any such orders after the Decree Nisi has been pronounced.

The Courts can make Orders concerning assets not only in this country but also assets held overseas be it family trusts, bank accounts or properties. The Court has extremely wide powers and there are many complex issues which arise when dealing with assets held off shore including tax and trust implications as well as enforcement. We have had significant experience in assisting clients when faced with such problems. These may necessitate seeking advice from foreign lawyers and also accountants.

The legal framework and procedure for financial matters urges the parties to try to reach agreement between themselves, this can be directly, through solicitors or mediation and consent orders can be drafted and filed with the Court to ensure that any agreement becomes legally binding.
