The breakdown of your relationship is a troubling time, and you may not know where to turn. Divorce solicitors play a crucial role in property division during divorce proceedings. Our primary responsibility is to represent our client’s interests and ensure a fair and equitable division of assets, including property.

We will firstly work on providing you with legal guidance regarding the property division laws. We will help you to understand your rights and entitlements under the law. You can read about the property division laws yourself on the GOV website here: Money and property when you divorce or separate: Getting a financial agreement – GOV.UK (

We will then assess your assets and identify their value. This includes properties, investments, businesses, bank accounts and personal belongings. We sometimes collaborate with financial experts to ensure an accurate valuation.

On your behalf, we will negotiate with the other side to achieve a fair division of property. We will work towards a mutual agreement with their legal representation, hopefully amicably. In some cases, we may suggest Mediation to facilitate the property division outside of court.

Once an agreement is reached, we will draft a legally binding settlement agreement outlining the terms of the property division. These agreements specify how assets will be distributed, addressing issues such as; ownership, responsibility for debts, and any spousal support arrangements.

As family law specialists, we approach any case with sensitivity, empathy and understanding. You can rely on us to provide reliable and efficient service. We play a pivotal role in guiding our clients through the complex process of property division, ensuring their rights are protected and advocating for a fair outcome. We also collaborate with other professionals such as mediators, financial advisors, barristers, accountants, and divorce coaches so that our clients have access to all the professional support that you may need.
