International Expertise

Many HNW divorces have international elements, for example, one party wishes to divorce in England and Wales even though both parties reside abroad for most of the year. We have the expertise needed to ensure we move fast when filing for divorce in a particular jurisdiction. And when it comes to finding hidden assets and lifting corporate veils, we will collaborate with top forensic accountants to discover concealed funds whilst ensuring there is an injunction in place to prevent such assets from being disposed of or destroyed.

Members of Resolution

Our HNW Divorce Solicitors are members of Resolution, an organisation of 6,500 Solicitors who follow a Code of Practice designed to enable couples to divorce in a non-confrontational way. Of course, we are always ready to file Court proceedings but in many cases we can resolve disputes around financial settlements and arrangements for children through negotiation or mediation, saving all parties the emotional and financial costs that come with litigation.

Below are some common FAQs we receive regarding HNW divorce

A Freezing Order is an interim injunction that prevents a person from disposing of or dealing with certain assets. The usual objective of a Freezing Order is to preserve the assets until a judgement is obtained or enforced.

Assets that are typically the subject of Freezing Orders are property, stocks and shares, bank accounts, and valuable assets such as luxury cars and art. A Freezing Order can apply in the UK only or be applicable worldwide.

Freezing Orders have been called the “nuclear weapon” of the law and will only be made in situations where it is just and convenient to do so. Our HNW Solicitors have the experience and tenacity required to collate the evidence and, alongside a top Barrister or Queen’s Counsel, persuade the Court that such an injunction is needed.

Spousal maintenance is a payment made by one spouse to another following a divorce. The payments can be periodical or lump sum and are in addition to child maintenance. When deciding whether to award spousal maintenance, the Court will consider the factors under Section 25 of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973.

These include (but are not limited to) the:

  • Financial resources and needs of the parties.
  • Responsibilities of each party, for example, looking after children.
  • Standard of living enjoyed by both parties during the marriage.

Our HNW Divorce Solicitors will advise you on how much spousal maintenance you are likely to receive (or how much you may have to pay) and work towards agreeing on a sum through negotiation or mediation. If no agreement is reached, we will file proceedings in Court.

“Overall, I just want to say a few things as a testimonial to pass on to the partners. I have dealt with a number of solicitors in my time both in my working environment and on personal matters, but the service given by yourself has been exemplary. This is for a number of reasons, firstly my dealings with yourself have always been handled with the upmost professionalism. I also have never felt at any point the need to chase you as you always have been managing every transition and process with an attention to detail that I could not fault. This has been an extremely difficult time for me but the feeling of reliability in your service has helped me greatly through the process. I will be recommending your service and the firm to others in the future.”
