Out of Court Settlements for Family disputes & Separation
There are many ways our family solicitors can help you reach a settlement out of court by negotiating on your behalf.
We would spend time with you to explain all the relevant background and also for us to understand what is important to you. We would then help you collate all of the necessary information and request that your former partner provides us with any necessary information and documents. For those going through a divorce, both parties are under a duty to provide full and honest details of their financial circumstances so that a settlement can be negotiated in full knowledge of the facts.
We can then advise you, listening to your priorities, on the potential outcomes and then enter into negotiations on your behalf.
The negotiations traditionally take place through a series of written correspondence and telephone calls but it can also include round table meetings, the use of mediators or private FDR Judges.
It is also possible to bring in professional advice from a range of experts, whether appointed jointly or by just by you. We regularly work with mortgage advisors, independent financial advisors, accountants to value businesses, pension actuaries and surveyors to value properties.
When going into negotiations it is very important that you take independent legal advice so you understand the issues that need to be considered and understand the implications of any settlement you are considering entering into.
The team of experienced family solicitors at Lupton Fawcett have helped many clients by providing robust, clear and practical advice and negotiating a settlement on their behalf.
