Thoroughly excellent service provided via Wikivorce. Was slightly apprehensive of how it would all work, especially at a distance. However, they were swift, efficient, immensely polite, accurate, and gave regular updates. I would recommend them to anyone.
Can't fault my experience in any way. Brilliant advice / available at short notice for any questions and most importantly swiftly achieved the desired result. Found Austin Kemp after feeling HCB Solicitors were not acting in my best interests and I was correct on all fronts - even including having an appreciation for the fact Divorce is already emotional situation. Also, rather than have to query every suggested next step and be charged for the pleasure; As I'd done a little research of my own and was able to challenge their advice - however we pay Solicitors for their expertise and need to put our trust in them. Austin Kemp thankfully achieved that for me during our first conversation I was already reassured they understood what I wanted and how best to achieve it. Resulting in 7-8 months less work and no court appearances as I had been previously advised by HCB. I THANK YOU DEARLY AUSTIN KEMP. I can start my life again earlier and with a healthier bank balance because of you!!!
Amazing service. For the first time in nearly two years I feel less in a spiral and more in control.
Thoroughly professional, straightforward, timely and reasonably priced. I would recommend this firm to anyone. Thank you Emma and Austen Kemp for a great service.
Thank you so much. You were great. I wasted so much time and money with my previous solicitors and only regret I did not contact you earlier. I have dropped a line to Paul to thank him for referring me to you. I hope you enjoyed the red I sent you as a token of our appreciation.
Austin Kemp provides a pragmatic and honest approach to the individual's journey through Family Law issues. They demonstrate a willingness and capacity to respond to challenging and unpredictable circumstances. The professional, yet personal, service is naturally client centred, but with a realistic and informed view of children's needs. And it has been heartening to have such a caring team walk beside me in the long journey.
I cannot recommend highly enough Austin Kemp as a strong, commercially intelligent and the most effective negotiators. Their negotiation skills are second to none. I have seen firsthand the excellent results this team achieves for their clients.
Just want to say thanks so much for everything. You have been brilliant and very patient. I always felt comfortable calling when asking to clarify certain points of the divorce.
I can honestly say that I am more than satisfied with the management of my case and of my then state of mind. I highly recommend this firm. Thank you.
Amandeep Kooner was not prepared to be swayed from a path of professionalism to accommodate my anxiety and frustration. He would not succumb to taking instructions tit for tat response. He ensured at all times that the response he gave reflected a dignified client with a pleasant demeanour. In so doing he demonstrated his commitment to protect and secure my interests and dignity off which I am most grateful.
Although he has a dual approached role which is business and a duty of care, Amandeep Kooner showed concerns for the level of expenditure that I had already put out with no resolve. His team contained the work to the minimum and produced the maximum results. My case was quickly progressed without compromising compassion and understanding.
Very professional service! Explained everything they were doing for my case every step of the way and really helped me to understand how we would proceed. Thank you!
Intellectually bright, hardworking and extremely professional - Amandeep Kooner took my case at it most difficult as I had come to the end of my ability to remain calm and patient. Up until I instructed Austin Kemp, I had lost all hope that any solicitor could convince me in pursuing a non-retaliatory approach as I was losing ground to allegations and fabrications. Tough, hardworking and extremely professional.
Not only is the family home often one of the most valuable assets from a financial viewpoint, it usually holds a great deal of sentimental value for both parties. This means that reaching a divorce property settlement can often be the most difficult part of the financial settlement negotiations.
In this article, we’ll look at ways you can reach a divorce property settlement with your spouse and discuss the factors a court considers when asked to decide how to divide a couple’s finances upon divorce.
Divorcing couples can, and do, agree to a divorce property settlement between themselves.
However, even if a couple intend to reach a divorce property settlement without any external help, we would strongly advise that each party seeks independent legal advice from a divorce solicitor, in order to ensure that when discussions begin, both parties fully understand their legal rights and what they may be entitled to.
For many people, conducting discussions about the divorce property settlement can be tough.
Emotions are often running high following a relationship breakdown and even those who broke up on the most friendly of terms, can find the ensuing financial discussions hard.
For divorcing couples who are struggling to reach an agreement about their divorce property settlement, there is help available.
Many people find mediation useful. This involves both parties attending sessions with a mediator, an independent third party who is there to aid discussions with the aim of reaching an agreement.
As well as helping with the divorce property settlement, a mediator can also help with a wide range of other issues you haven’t yet reached an agreement on, such as child arrangements and how you will split other assets.
Collaborative law works by getting both parties and their respective solicitors together in a meeting room, with the aim of discussing the divorce property settlement (as well as other contentious issues) and reaching an agreement.
Normally, asking a court to decide your financial settlement should be viewed as a last resort.
However, if a couple are unable to reach an agreement about the divorce property settlement, applying to the court for a financial order may be the only remaining option.
When deciding your financial settlement, the court will take into account various factors such as:
• how long you have been married
• your money and property
• your standard of living
• your income and earning capacity
As part of the divorce property settlement, the court may, for example, order that the house be sold and the equity be divided between both parties. Alternatively, the court may order that the sale of the property be deferred until a specific event takes place (the last child reaching 18, for example).
These are just two examples of what may happen as part of a divorce property settlement.
What a divorce property settlement will look like will depend on what is fair, as well as the needs of all parties.
