We can advise on all aspects of financial disputes including those involving pensions, businesses and properties. We also frequently advise Military personnel, as a result of our links with the Army via our Darlington and Northallerton offices.
A financial settlement is a legally binding decision on how you and your partner will divide your assets and wealth when your relationship ends. Financial arrangements are not only important to the immediate future but also the foundations for longer-term plans following a separation and avoid future conflicts.
Clark Willis can assist couples we are representing for a Divorce itself and also those applying for Divorce independently and cohabiting couples separating to document the financial terms or reach an agreement.
We can advise on all aspects of financial disputes including those involving property, pensions, business assets and high net worth individuals. Due to our longstanding link with Catterick Garrison, Clark Willis also provides specialist advice to members of HM Armed Forces.
Our team includes trained mediators and collaborative lawyers and we take a proactive approach in trying to resolve matters as quickly and amicably as possible through negotiation.
If a negotiated settlement cannot be reached then we can be resilient in proceedings to ensure the best outcome for our clients. In most circumstances, the court seeks to ensure that both parties are left in a position where they are no longer financially dependent on each other. A number of factors are taken into consideration including the parties earning capacities, their ages, the length of the marriage, the normal standard of living and any disabilities and with wide-ranging parameters, choosing the right law firm can have a significant impact to achieving the right outcome for you.
“Absolutely fantastic service throughout. Friendly and efficient staff and would recommend over and over again for all Law requirements.”
Mrs W, Darlington
