Financial Issues

How to reach a financial settlement in divorce?

You have started the divorce process.  You have agreed arrangements for your children.  You now need to consider the divison of the family assets. This is the final part of the divorce process and can be the trickiest to agree for a number of reasons.   The financial agreement contains the financial deal between you and your former partner.  The Court can either seal an agreement reached in a consent order or where proceedings have been initiated and there are outstanding issues, the Court will set down the financial terms in an Order, either way once sealed, it the terms are legally binding.
