Clean Break

Protect your assets! Even once you have divorced your husband or wife could still make an application to the court in relation to the matrimonial finances, even if you have already divided the assets. The only way to prevent your spouse from making even an application is to obtain an order from the court. Such orders can be made by consent when the parties have agreed a financial settlement. If there is such an agreement Howells solicitors can prepare a consent order and statement in support for just £350.00 plus VAT.
