Anyone who has been through a divorce, or even knows someone who has, will likely tell you that it was one of the most difficult and emotionally testing episodes of their life. When finances are involved, this can only serve to make things even harder. Unfortunately, it is estimated that approximately 42% of marriages in the UK end in divorce. Furthermore, the adversarial nature of divorce can lead to spiralling costs on both sides, delay the healing process and have repercussions beyond the couple themselves, as friends and family can also be affected.
It is also increasingly common for couples to separate without resolving their financial arrangements. Such situations can expose both sides to great risk, especially where financial circumstances have changed since they got together. The higher earner could find themselves financially exposed and be at risk of losing a larger portion of their assets (or even future earnings) than is necessary.
But divorce does not always have to be so adversarial. Family lawyers who are members of Resolution are committed to resolving disputes in a non-confrontational way, wherever possible. This reduces costs and the emotional stress of going through a divorce, and can even help a couple to resolve matters amicably. It is therefore important that separating couples find a specialist family lawyer who is a member of Resolution. One that not only has extensive experience in financial divorce, but also has a track record in achieving fair and successful financial settlements.
