Family Law Experts In Leeds

Financial Settlements – Solicitors in Leeds

You and your spouse, partner or civil partner may have assets such as property, savings, investments, pensions etc which will need to be considered upon your separation. You may own a business either on your own, with others, or together with your spouse or partner. There are lots of question such as how will these be divided between you? What is a fair outcome for both parties? What steps should you take to protect yourselves!

Trying to decide how these assets should be dealt with can seem like an overwhelming task. Here at Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP we are here to help guide you through the process.

We begin by gathering all the information relating to your assets and how much they are worth. In some instances you may need to get independent valuations. Once that has been established, we will be able to advise you further about a suitable financial settlement and how best to achieve a financial settlement.

Reaching a Financial Agreement

This is not always easy and at times it can be stressful, however it is important to remember that every case gets there in the end. Some are more complex whereas others more straightforward. We will constructively negotiate either by correspondence or through round-table meetings with your partner, spouse or his or her solicitor. If face to face isn’t an option there are other ways.

If you have been or are attending mediation we can advise you on any financial agreement reached and we will assist you in obtaining a legally binding financial agreement.

If reaching an agreement is not possible, through any of these methods, and sometimes it is not, it may be necessary to make an application to the court, for a Judge to decide the outcome in your case. If this is the only outcome you can be assured a supportive, proactive and understanding approach from your solicitor at Whiterose blackmans LLP.

  • 5 star review  Stuck in a legal rut? call Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP. in 2017 we had new UPVc flush fit windows fitted to our three bedroom detached house. From the day the windows were fitted we had problems and issues. A question I often ask myself, time after time. Is why did I pay the full amount knowing I wasn’t 100% happy. The window company Ryburne Windows of Halifax kept fobbing us off with excuses after excuses. They had our money and we felt powerless to do anything. They didn’t even have a formal complaints procedure. Which they were supposed to have being a CERTASS member. The Director of Ryburne’s told us, “just keep on writing in as the buck stops with me”. After many letters of complaint to the window company and CERTASS - who are a complete waste of time. We decided after two and a half years of complaining we would instruct a Solicitor. We went to see Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP armed with many documents and photos of the poorly fitted and poorly manufactured windows. Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP instantly understood our predicament and agreed to take on our case. Despite all the photographical evidence and a joint independent Royal Institute Chartered Surveyors (RICS) report into the manufacture and installation of the windows. The window company still wouldn’t accept the findings of the Surveyor’s report. They even got a former associate of theirs recommended by CERTASS to do a desk top critic of the independent surveyor's report. They failed on their attempt to introducing it as evidence to the courts. Thanks to a robust defence from Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP. With less than eight weeks before the reconvened hearing - May 2020, The window company decided to settle. After some tough negotiations by Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP. We got our money back for the windows plus our legal expenses. This would never have been achieved if it wasn’t for Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP. Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP, a firm you can trust. 30th April 2020
