What if my partner tries to hide money in our divorce proceedings?

Dealing with a family issue can sometimes feel challenging, but we’re here to reassure you. We are understanding and because we are also very experienced in family law, we’ve almost certainly encountered and helped to resolve similar issues. So we’ll be able to help, and we can also reassure you on another aspect – we are more affordable than you may expect.
If you are concerned that resolving a family matter may result in big legal fees, we offer options that help keep our bills modest. These options are based on us giving you advice, but not legal representation; we’ll provide guidance and recommend the actions you should take, but won’t represent you in court or send letters on your behalf. You’ll be in control, while we support you ‘behind the scenes’.
With our pay as you go option, you take charge of your case. If it’s necessary to go to court, you will be on the court record, represent yourself and have responsibility for the court proceedings. We won’t be in court or send correspondence for you, but we will provide advice whenever you need it. We will only charge for the work you ask us to do.
To keep you in control of costs and so you know exactly where you stand, we will ask you to deposit a certain amount of money in in account with us, and we’ll work to that limit. There won’t be any hidden costs or surprises. We will send you a bill once a month and let you know when your deposit is about to run out.
Our other option is even more flexible and could potentially be even more affordable. We will give you advice, as we’ve described above, in face to face meetings at one of our offices. You won’t need to deposit money in an account; instead you simply pay for each meeting when it takes place. You choose when you want to see us and what you’d like us to advise on.
If you have any questions about these options or any aspect of our support, please do call us. We’ll be delighted to hear from you.
