Divorce & Finance

Divorce & Finance

When you separate, dividing your finances and working out the next steps can be stressful and complicated. Mediation is a way for you both to work through the puzzle of different issues together to reach an agreement that meets your needs. The mediator can help you to understand what options you have and whether you need any experts, for example an independent financial adviser or an actuary, to provide you with more information.

Mediation can help you reach agreement about how to divide what there is, where you will live, and how your future finances will work. Your mediator can prepare an ‘Open Summary of Facts’ setting out the information you have both shared in mediation, and a ‘Protected Summary of Proposals’ setting out your proposed agreements. You can then use these to get efficient and accurate legal advice to help with your decision making.
