When it comes to sorting out financial matters after couple’s separate, it’s important to have sound legal advice which considers not only the here and now, but the implications for the long-term.
Browell Smith & Co has a great depth of experience in this field, which is why you can rely on our team of legal experts to deliver clear advice on the options available for restructuring your family finances.
We have been handling divorce cases and reaching satisfactory financial settlements for our clients for over 20 years now. We know that no two families are the same and, as such, appreciate the need for the personal touch in all legal dealings.
Our legal team appreciates that this can be an anxious time and that you may be worried about what will happen to the family home, savings, debts, pensions and financial needs for the children of the family. Not only do we consider legal solutions but also take into account practical considerations.
We work closely with other trusted professionals and where appropriate we can refer you to mediators, arbitrators, independent financial advisers, pensions advisers, accountants and estate agents.
We have extensive experience in negotiating and finalising financial settlements and acting on your behalf in any court proceedings.
You can put your trust in Browell Smith & Co.
When you first contact our family team, we will discuss your situation by email or telephone to explore how we can help you.
The next step is to arrange a meeting. This can be face-to-face, or by telephone or Skype. We will send you our terms of business setting out clearly our charges in writing before we meet you. We offer an initial fixed cost legal advice session to enable you to obtain quality legal advice tailored to your situation. This session will enable us to advise you on future costs, timescales and the best way to move your case forward.
We will follow up the session with written advice to you.
We are dedicated to our clients and feel that it is essential that we are up front and honest about our costs. We pride ourselves on being transparent with no hidden charges.
There are many ways that we can help you and the following cost options will be considered and agreed with you where possible:
• Fixed costs
• Full service representation
• Pay as you go/additional advice as things progress
• Assistance at Court packages to help support you if you choose to represent yourself in court
• Assistance at mediation package to help support your process at mediation
• Legal drafting of agreements reached at a fixed cost
We additionally work with litigation funding organisations who provide finance to enable you to fund a court case. We will work through the application process and explain the terms on which a loan may be offered.
You may also be able to seek a Legal Services Order from the court to secure your legal fees to be met from the other party. We will discuss with you whether this would be an appropriate course of action for you.
