Property and Finance Matters in Divorce

At Onions and Davies, our experienced family law team specialise in handling property and finance matters in divorce cases. We understand that the division of assets, including the family home, pensions, and other financial aspects, is of utmost importance to all our clients’ futures.










Financial Remedy on Divorce – Resolving Disputes and Achieving Fair Settlements

When it comes to divorce matters, obtaining the Final Divorce Order is crucial, but the financial aspects are equally significant. These financial applications, now known as Financial Remedy on Divorce, require careful consideration and skilled legal advice.

The division of marital assets is not always a straightforward equal split. Factors like the presence of children play a vital role in determining a fair division. At Onions and Davies, our experienced divorce lawyers have the specialist legal knowledge to advise you on the appropriate division of assets in your case. We will assertively argue your position and work towards a suitable financial settlement with your spouse or their solicitor.

Get in touch with our specialist family law team at for compassionate guidance and tailored legal solutions on property and finance matters in divorce – we are here to support you every step of the way.










Achieving Settlements Efficiently and Cost-Effectively

Our aim at Onions & Davies is to reduce animosity and focus on the factual and legal aspects of your case to promptly achieve the right result. Whether there be pensions, a family business, trusts or an array of capital and property assets, our skilled team will manage matters efficiently while keeping costs as low as possible. We provide clear cost advice, offering regular updates so you can stay informed about your expenses.

We strive to achieve an out-of-court settlement by agreement whenever possible. This approach not only avoids the daunting prospect of facing your spouse in court but also helps minimise costs. Any agreements reached are incorporated into a Consent Order, which requires proper legal procedures and accompanying documentation.

We will advise you about all of your options so that you can make the right, informed decisions as your case develops. We will provide the steady-hand of legal advice and assistance to support you along the way.

Clean Break Consent Order – Securing a Future Free from Financial Claims

At Onions and Davies, we strongly recommend wrapping up your matrimonial finances on divorce through a Consent Order or an Order of the Court. A Final Divorce Order does not sever your financial ties to each other, and only a financial remedy order can achieve that. It is crucial to address this issue to prevent future complications, even if you have moved on with another partner, remarried, or had children.

In some instances, a ‘clean break’ may be possible. A Clean Break Consent Order ensures that neither party has the right to future claims from each other or each other’s estate. By setting out agreed-upon terms and dismissing all claims between the parties, it provides a definitive division of assets.

There are many aspects to financial remedy, and depending on the assets and family circumstances involved, the level of complication can vary. Each party will have certain obligations towards the other and the children of the family and also certain rights which need protecting.

Louise Martin – Head of the Family Team – offers a firm but fair approach.
