When a marriage, civil partnership or long-term relationship ends, it’s important that both parties concisely and fairly arrange, manage and agree on how to divide their assets. Our experienced family law solicitors are highly experienced in the process of financial resolution and will guide you through the process.
The Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 as amended sets out a list of factors which a Court will take into account when dealing with the financial issues arising on the break down of a marriage or registered civil partnership.

Each case is decided on its own facts. The Middletons Family Law team has experience in dealing with the resolution of financial disputes arising on the breakdown of a relationship and have specific expertise with regard to Armed Forces Pensions and other state funded pension schemes.
It is essential that you and your spouse give your lawyers full and frank disclosure of all your capital income, pensions and other assets. It is only once all documents are disclosed that the best advice can be given with regard to the division of assets, the sharing of pensions and the provision of maintenance.
It is hoped that a resolution in each case agreement will be reached by negotiation, mediation or the collaborative route which will allow a Consent Order to be submitted to the Court to reflect the terms agreed.
