Family money

Family money

It can be difficult to talk about money at the best of times.  When a relationship breaks down, disputes can often arise about financial matters.

Key financial issues to address may include ensuring a fair split of family assets, agreeing pension provisions, taking account of any prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, and unravelling any complex financial investments or business interests, while keeping the tax bill low.

We advise on:

Depending on how well you get on with your partner and the complexity of your financial affairs, you have a choice of routes to go down. Most couples wish to avoid going to court if possible, and our family lawyers are skilled at helping couples to reach agreement in a more constructive way, such as through mediation.

The ‘exceptional’ family law team at Miles & Partners is recognised in the 2022 Legal 500 with the following testimonials:

‘large, supportive and diverse team with strength and depth.’

‘A very well managed firm of solicitors catering for a wide diversity of clients needing assistance in the field of family law.’

‘Miles & Partners has maintained a consistently good reputation for years due to its unwavering commitment to clients. The lawyers always put in the hours necessary to achieve the right results, often going above and beyond to assist their clients.  If you are their client you know you have someone who cares on your side.’

‘They have recently brought in a new system so there are always 2 case workers assigned to any case to ensure that clients have someone available with knowledge of their case even if the previously ‘lead’ solicitor is unavailable. This has undoubtedly benefited those who instruct them and provides an even better level of service.’
