How can Austin Kemp Solicitors in Halifax help?

Our divorce solicitors help clients from Halifax and the surrounding area with a range of legal issues, including:

Getting specialist divorce advice our Halifax divorce solicitors can make a real difference to the outcome of your divorce settlement. Our Halifax divorce solicitors particularly specialise in advising high net worth individuals, or spouses of high net worth individuals, with international assets and investments.

After you’ve discussed the business and what you know about it with our specialist Halifax divorce solicitors, you then need to decide what you actually want to get out of the family business in your divorce settlement. Some people would prefer to have some sort of income from the business rather than become a joint owner and work with their ex-spouse on a daily basis.

However, what is right for one couple may not be right for you. Deciding what you would like to get out of the negotiations right at the beginning, whilst bearing in mind what the courts would think was fair, can lead to successful negotiations and no need to go to court. It is worth bearing in mind that if you do just want to receive a share of the business’ income through maintenance, then you will lose your right to the maintenance when you re-marry.

Should I instruct my own accountant to value the business during my divorce?

The court may request that an independent professional should value your business as part of the financial settlement on divorce. You can, however, ask your accountant to value your business for you and advise you on issues such as how much profit you have made. If you would like your accountant to value your business independently of the court appointed professional, then you should get specialist legal advice from our Halifax divorce solicitors before making any decisions.

Our Halifax divorce solicitors specialise in advising high net worth individuals, or spouses of high net worth individuals, throughout the divorce process. We understand the complexities a family business can bring to a divorce settlement and can advise you of your options and whether you need to take any immediate action.

After obtaining independent legal advice, you should, if possible, discuss your settlement with your spouse to try and reach an agreement. You can also try things such as mediation or solicitor to solicitor negotiations before taking your case to court, which can be time consuming and costly, especially when there are complex business issues involved. Our Halifax divorce solicitors are highly skilled in negotiating with your spouse’s solicitor in order to get you the best possible outcome.
