Division of finances

Dividing your finances in the event of divorce has the potential to be a very contentious matter and, for many separating couples, is often at the centre of numerous disputes and arguments. Finding a solution that ensures you are able to negotiate a clean break and have financial security for the future is something our team can support you with.

Financial settlements may be arranged on a voluntary basis via simple negotiation or alternative dispute resolution. If this is not a possibility, our divorce and finances solicitors near Beverley can also support you with the process of applying to the courts for a Financial Order.

Arrangements for children

No matter what the circumstances might be, the welfare of your children will always be your first priority following a divorce or separation. Making arrangements for your children following a divorce can be difficult, with the need to carefully balance what is best for them with your rights as a parent.

Many child arrangements can be made voluntarily through methods of alternative dispute resolution, which helps to reduce the stress and disruption for all involved.

Change of name

You may find it necessary to change your name or that of your children. Where this is the case, seeking legal advice is strongly recommended, especially where children are concerned, as you will also need the consent of anyone else who has parental responsibility.

Our change of name solicitors near Beverley can assist with the relevant processes, including securing consent.

Pre-nuptial agreements

A pre-nuptial agreement (often referred to as a prenup) is a document signed prior to a marriage that effectively sets out what will happen in the event that you and your partner separate in the future. They are an increasingly popular option for couples from all walks of life but can be particularly useful where there is a significant difference in wealth, it is a second marriage, or either party already has children.

Our pre-nuptial agreement solicitors near Beverley can assist with the process of negotiating and drafting an agreement, as well as responding to an agreement your partner has drafted to ensure that your rights are firmly protected. If you are already married, we can also assist with a post-nuptial agreement, which works in much the same way.

Cohabitation agreements

It’s certainly not uncommon for couples to live together without being married. However, contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as a ‘common law marriage’ in the UK, which means unmarried couples do not have any automatic legal rights to one another’s property in the event of a divorce or separation.

A cohabitation agreement will set out each person’s financial rights and responsibilities, both during the relationship and in the event that separation occurs. Our cohabitation agreement solicitors near Beverley can support you in drafting a suitable cohabitation agreement, as well as advise you on your options if you have been asked to sign one by your partner. We can also help you if you wish to update an existing agreement you have in place.

Separation agreements

Getting an immediate divorce isn’t always the best option for many couples who are having difficulties with their relationship. Instead, a separation agreement which sets out how finances will be divided, including maintenance and any arrangements for children, is often the most sensible option.

Our separation agreement solicitors near Beverley can assist you with making, negotiating and responding to a separation agreement, making sure that you have certainty if you do divorce in the future.

Domestic abuse
