Consent Order

Finance Mediation Advice

Reaching a finance and property settlement is important. When a relationship ends, it is inevitable that your finances and that of your ex-partner will be tied together, in some way. You may co-own your home, a business or investments and these now need to be divided between you and your ex-partner to enable you to separate financially as well as emotionally.

If you are a divorcing couple, you will need to satisfy the courts, as part of your divorce, that you have reached a financial settlement. If children are involved, the courts will also ant to know that adequate financial provision is being made for the children. There may also be a settlement required in relation to your pensions.

For unmarried couples planning to separate, the laws are not as strict but you will still want to find agreement and settle amicably to save the costs of going to court.

How Family Mediation Can Help

Our specialist accredited Family Mediators provide financial mediation. Our mediators provide a full disclosure and mediation service for property and financial settlements. We help you gather the right documents and provide factual information needed to draft a financial order to submit as part of your divorce process. It can speed up your divorce if completed quickly.

Once we have the information, we will produce an Open Statement of Financial Information for you. This document contains all your joint financial information, together with supporting statements, valuations and certificates.

Our experienced family mediators will guide you through the process of discussing options for reaching agreement on property, pensions and other valuables as well as debts and how they will be managed. Once an agreement is reached, your mediator will draft a Memorandum of Understanding which will confirm the division of assets and liabilities, ready to hand to your lawyer, for a financial consent order to be drafted.
If you would like to discuss your finance and property settlement and wish to speak to a mediator, contact us today.
