Husband in divorce proceedings

We represented the husband in divorce proceedings where the parties’ financial circumstances were extremely complex, involving businesses, investments and pensions.

Although an application had been made by the wife to the Court for financial provision, it was felt by both parties and their respective legal representatives that the involvement of the Court was not likely to assist with the already acrimonious relationship and that a settlement was more probable if both parties, with the assistance of their legal representatives, could meet and discuss matters “round-table”.

A meeting therefore took place in a neutral venue and, although it lasted 9 hours, as a result of the skills of the legal representatives the parties’ willingness to remain “at the table”, a negotiated settlement was achieved and the matter, therefore, settled to the satisfaction of both the husband and the wife.
