Financial Settlement

To be able to move forward with your life after divorce, you need to secure a fair financial settlement. 

We know how important it is for you and your children’s future to have the funds required to purchase a home, have an adequate pension, pay for school fees, and retain the standard of living you enjoyed whilst you were married. 

Based in Coventry city centre, our Family Law Solicitors will take the time to understand the result you want concerning your financial settlement and work tirelessly to achieve it. 

We are a diverse, multi-lingual law firm, our specialist solicitors use best-in-class technology to provide clients with streamlined, modern, and highly effective family law advice and representation.  Our years of experience in family law means we have a robust reputation for excellence with the UK’s best Barristers and King’s Counsel, Forensic Accountants, Independent Financial Advisers, Surveyors, Actuaries, and Counsellors who can bring additional support to our family law department if required.  Our clients also benefit from our ability to instruct the country’s most respected expert witnesses.

Our family law ethos

Our Family Solicitors are members of Resolution, an organisation of family law professionals who believe a non-confrontational approach to financial settlement discussions produces better long term outcomes.  Our team abides by Resolution’s Code of Practice and work to resolve financial settlement disputes through round table negotiation and mediation.  However, if Court proceedings prove inevitable, you can trust that we will fight tenaciously to get the best possible results for you and your children.

Our highly intelligent and compassionate Solicitors have received training on dealing with the emotional impact of divorce and working out the financial settlement.  If you are finding things difficult, we can refer you to support agencies and counsellors that can help you.  Our team, which include trained Mediators and members of the Law Society’s Children’s Law Panel, are here to help you when life takes an unexpected turn and get the results you need to move on to a positive future.
