FINANCIAL SETTLEMENT LAWYERS IN BRISTOL, CLEVEDON & PORTISHEAD

We are financial settlement lawyers in Bristol, Clevedon & Portishead

You and your spouse, partner or civil partner may have assets – property, savings, investments, pensions – which will need to be considered upon your separation.

You may own a business either on your own, with others, or together with your spouse or partner. How will these be divided? What is fair? What should you do to protect yourself?

The starting point for trying to decide how these assets should be dealt with is by finding out exactly what the assets are and how much they are worth. You may need to obtain independent valuations for some of your assets, such as property or pensions. Once that has been ascertained, we will be able to advise you further about a suitable financial settlement and how best to achieve a financial settlement.

''After ending the disappointing services of a previous law firm, who were acting for me with my divorce and financial settlement, I was recommended to Harbour family Law. I made an appointment with Fiona Greener; this was the best decision I made. After having my first meeting with Fiona, I came away feeling I was not alone. Fiona was superb, her experience, calm reassuring approach and professionalism shone through. The court hearing was something I was dreading but Fiona was so well prepared, and I was so grateful to Fiona for her choice of barrister. They were the dream team at the hearing and the day concluded with a very successful result for me. I cannot thank Fiona enough and all the team at Harbour Family Law.''
