FINANCES

Finances are typically the most complex aspect of a divorce and can provoke the most divisive arguments.

The partners at Peters May regularly advise on all aspects of financial claims including property adjustment, spousal maintenance (duration and amount), pension sharing, overseas assets and interim financial arrangements. We understand that you may feel overwhelmed with immediate concerns about the future, the children, the house, the money and how you will manage. Our role is to support you in finding a way through this, so that you can make informed decisions based on the facts.

Jessica served as lead Solicitor in my divorce; my highly contested financial court application and my children court proceedings. She was highly personable and understanding of my situation. I am forever grateful for her counsel. As a satisfied former client, I highly endorse Jessica for her counsel in matters of family law.
I had a very protracted and complicated divorce because of the stance my Husband took and the fact we jointly owned a successful business.  I had to get the right lawyer who was not only a specialist and could keep up with my Husband in what became a battle of wits but who was supportive and who I trusted. Both Juliette and Jessica were those things in spades as they worked in partnership to get me the fair financial result that I wanted.
Finances often involve layers of complexity. There may be assets acquired before the marriage that need to be considered, inherited wealth or offshore trust structures and companies. We are very comfortable with this and will advise on financial disclosure, trace hidden assets and analyse the facts around your case using the most cost-effective strategy.

There are different approaches to reaching a financial settlement including direct negotiation between individuals with solicitors advising behind the scenes, negotiation between solicitors, mediation and arbitration and then court proceedings. In some cases, mediation or arbitration might be the right answer. In others, going to court might be the only option. Although it sounds daunting, going to court can often be the right course of action to resolve a challenging situation.

Whatever the circumstances, we will help you decide on the right path and give you the confidence to make the right decisions.
Family law is inherently complex. For thoughtful, expert advice do get in touch.
My financial scenario was extremely complicated, covering substantial UK real estate, many trusts and large sums of money outside of the jurisdiction in several countries. No stone was left unturned and every avenue was thoroughly explored to secure the best possible outcome.
Juliette acted for me in a particularly difficult, acrimonious divorce from a husband qualified in the legal profession. She has a razor sharp attention to detail, very tenacious and extremely knowledgeable. I have recommended a number of friends to her, including high net worth individuals who have all been delighted with the outcome of their particular matters.  Juliette has to be one of the very best in her field.

Juliette and Jessica worked in partnership to get me the fair financial result that I wanted. I will be eternally grateful to them for their guidance, strength and humour at a very difficult time.
