How our high net worth divorce solicitors can help

Relationship breakdown can be incredibly traumatic for the whole family. Where complicated questions about the division of high value assets arise, tensions can quickly arise, which is why the advice of an experienced family law solicitor is absolutely essential to avoid any unnecessary stress of conflict.

Our family law specialists have substantial expertise in making arrangements for high net worth divorces and will be on hand to lend their expertise.

Wherever possible, we will work with you to use methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), such as family mediation and collaborative law, to help you avoid contentious court proceedings.

In addition to the standard divorce services we provide, such as guiding you through the general process and making arrangements for children, our expertise in high net worth divorces also includes:

High net worth financial settlements

Our high net worth divorce solicitors can work alongside you to make arrangements for a financial settlement that is fair for both parties while also protecting your best interests now and in the future.

If you have never had to handle high-value assets before, or there is a substantial financial disparity between you and your former partner, the situation may appear very daunting. That is why our team provide straightforward guidance that focuses on securing a settlement with minimal fuss.

We can support you in making a financial settlement that takes into account various factors, such as:

  • The family home
  • Pension funds
  • Savings and investments
  • Business interests
  • International assets
  • Child maintenance
  • Spousal maintenance

We have previous experience in working with a wide range of high-net worth individuals, such as professionals, business owners and retirees, so we are well placed to lend our support.

The division of businesses

If you are a business owner or you have a stake in a business, you will need to consider how your commercial interests may be affected by your divorce. Businesses are treated as matrimonial assets, which means their value can be divided between both parties.

Our high net worth divorce solicitors can support you and your partner in making an arrangement for any businesses you have a stake in, ensuring that you reach a settlement that is in your best interests, as well as those of the business and any other third parties.

Spousal maintenance agreements

When one party has a significantly higher income than the other in a divorce, it may be appropriate for a spousal maintenance agreement to be put in place.

Our team can work with you to negotiate a fair spousal maintenance agreement and provide relevant advice about factors such as interim payments. These may be ordered by the court before a divorce is finalised so that you and your former partner are on equal footing before negotiations begin.

How we handle high net worth divorces

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our high net worth divorce solicitors believe that resolving divorces amicably is the preferred approach, as opposed to time-consuming and stressful court proceedings.

Our family law specialists are members of Resolution, an organisation of family law professionals all dedicated to promoting ADR over court.

We offer various methods of ADR that we will be happy to discuss with you so you can make an informed decision about how to proceed.

Defended divorce

If you and your partner are unable to come to an agreement between yourselves, it may be necessary to enter into court proceedings to find a resolution.

Where this is the case, we can offer clear, realistic advice about the best way to proceed. We can also offer robust representation on your behalf, ensuring you have the best possible chance of achieving a positive result.
