Finances

Dealing with the financial aspects of a divorce or separation are frequently one of the most difficult and sensitive aspects to resolve.

At Mundays you can be confident that we have the expertise to handle financial matters relating to your Divorce or separation. We have an extremely strong team of lawyers, many of whom have significant experience in dealing with complex and high value cases, involving businesses, trusts, offshore assets and pensions. We also deal regularly with cases which have an International element. At the same time, we have many cases with more modest assets which often can be the more difficult to crack. It is not always easy to divide the family wealth, when it seems that there is not enough to go around, in a way that is fair and meets everyone’s needs whilst keeping legal costs at a sensible and “proportionate” level. These cases often need a constructive and practical approach.

It is not always necessary for there to be court proceedings (often we will reach an agreement at an early stage) but if we do need to go to court we file proceedings in the Central Family Court or the High Court in London. We instruct barristers from the most highly regarded chambers, including 1 Hare Court and 29 Bedford Row who have many of the best known and highly regarded QCs and leading junior barristers in the field of Family Law. We are in touch with the latest developments in case law and the latest legal thinking and will be quick to react on your behalf.
