Financial Settlement


We recognise that every case is different when reaching a financial settlement after divorce. Laws governing distribution of property and other assets are complex and they continuously change. 

Rucklidge’s Family Law will strive to achieve the fairest financial settlement for you and your family. We will protect your starting financial position, regarding accommodation and income, whilst working through the process, to prevent your husband/wife disposing of any assets. 

We will ensure full disclosure of all assets, we’ll trace assets not disclosed, and we’ll review the valuation of any assets disclosed whilst negotiating the best settlement for you. In some cases, we may need to appoint other experts, such as forensic accountants, tax specialists, surveyors and barristers.

"The Law governing the distribution of property and other assets after divorce is a complex and changing area of law. There is no prescribed method for working out how to reach a settlement in these cases"


Are there any court fees?

The court charges a fee of £255.00 to issue your application for a financial order. However, you may be entitled to an exemption or reduction to your court fees and this will be explored with your Rucklidge’s solicitor.
