Finances on separation and divorce

Porto Bella’s divorce team can help with financial matters surrounding a divorce or separation.

When you are ready to get divorced or separated, it is important that you also deal with the finances. We know that this can be the most complicated and intimidating part of your divorce and the thought of costly legal expenses are likely to add to the difficulties you are currently facing.

Reaching an agreement is never easy. In order to reduce the stress surrounding divorce, we can help with you all aspects of your financial situations.

We encourage parties to try and reach a settlement by way of mediation or roundtable meetings. We only suggest court proceedings as a last resort. If matters need to proceed through the court, then we want you to rest assured that we are with you every step of the way. Our team will guide you through the process in the most cost-effective way.

If you have agreed what is to happen to your assets, we will draft the paperwork and file this at Court. We will make this process as easy as possible for you and pride ourselves in offering a fixed fee service, so you are aware of the costs with no hidden charges at the end!

If matters can not be agreed between you and your spouse and proceed to Court, we offer a fixed fee service at each stage of proceedings, so you are fully aware of the costs involved from the outset. We do not hide our charges and we can guarantee that you will not be left with a bill that you were unaware of from the outset.

Finances on Separation- Separation agreements

We understand that separation is a preferred option for some and in the circumstances, where divorce is not the right choice for you, a separation agreement can be used to give some financial certainty before a final order is made. The terms of this agreement (although not binding) are likely to form the basis of a final order. Therefore, it is important that you get this right. We can draft an agreement for you that provides for division of assets and any maintenance issues. We offer an online fixed fee to draft this for you with no extra hidden costs.
