Within proceedings relating to the ending of a relationship it is often inevitable that consideration of family finances is required. Whether by agreement or after negotiation or considerations of the Court, a fully binding Financial Order gives reassurance that matters are appropriately concluded. This means that you can go forward and make plans for your future accommodation, capital and pension provisions, secure in the knowledge that your own financial circumstances will not be the subject of future challenge. Maintenance payments can be agreed or determined following investigation of income and expenditure but sometimes need to be reviewed due to the length of time that has passed since payment first began, or due to an extreme change in circumstance by one or other party.
Financial Remedy Orders can be the subject of enforcement action if a breach of the original terms takes place or if implementation of the terms cannot be appropriately effected. Our Family Lawyer is experienced in the consideration of settlement terms and how to draft the appropriate orders with terminology that will give you the full benefit and protection of the law so that what is intended to happen does indeed occur. Carol Stevens-Stratten would be happy to consider with you the options available to you, in terms of procedure, timing and costing implications of ensuring you achieve your aims in as amicable and expeditious manner as possible.
