We have financial dispute and spousal maintenance experts based in Exeter, Teignmouth, Newton Abbot in Devon.
When couples separate there is a need to sort out the financial assets. Sometimes this can be achieved by agreement and our team of experienced solicitors are able to draw up the formal documentation to reflect the agreement reached.
Financial disputes are common and agreements cannot always be reached within a reasonable time frame. You may need assistance with:
Property, Businesses, Trusts, Share Holdings, Bank Accounts, Maintenance, Agricultural Property and Pensions.
There are various ways of approaching the financial issues:
Before an application for financial orders can be made to the court, parties are required to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) unless they fall into an excepted category.
If an application needs to be made to the court then the court will impose a timetable on the proceedings to allow for all disputes to be settled within a reasonable time frame.
Once an application is filed at court, the court sets the timetable and directs the parties to file and exchange financial statements – these are in a standard format known as Form E.
For more information on financial disputes or arrangements such as spousal maintenance, legal advice for farmers, armed forces personnel, police and fire services, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our specialist team here at Tozers Solicitors.
