What lies ahead if you and your spouse/partner cannot reach an agreement?

If you have not reached an agreement with your spouse/partner, Kew Law can assist you in the following ways:-

  • We can advise you as to what would be a fair financial agreement to enable you to discuss matters further with your spouse/partner.

We can write to your spouse/partner and negotiate directly with him or her or through his or her solicitors. Kew Law will always endeavour to conduct your case in an amicable and non-contentious way.  We do not wish to make matters more difficult than they already are.  It is hoped that if both parties are legally advised and have a good understanding of how the Courts would look at their case, that an agreement could be reached rather than incurring unnecessary legal costs in taking the matter to Court.

  • Another alternative is for the parties to attend mediation.

Mediation can be a very effective way of dealing with disputes between parties.  Kew Law can refer you to a trained mediator and advise you during the process.

If an agreement can be reached, then Kew Law can assist you with having that agreement incorporated into a legally binding Order known as the Consent Order previously discussed.

If Kew Law are unable to reach an agreement with your spouse/partner with regard to division of the matrimonial assets through negotiation, it may be that we will need to issue an application to the Court.  This is known as making an application to the Court for ancillary relief.  An application can be made to the Court if divorce proceedings or judicial separation proceedings have been issued.
