Urgent financial applications on divorce can be needed where an individual is concerned that their spouse/civil partner is trying to dispose of financial assets to try and stop them from claiming them. In certain circumstances, it is possible to apply for a freezing order or injunction or recover assets that are suspected to have been disposed of.
These are not everyday events but it is important to have a solicitor with the right knowledge and experience advising you when the need arises.
When couples separate and divorce, real anxieties about finance often come to the surface. It is not uncommon in this situation when trust has broken down, for one person to try to hide or dispose of assets so that the other person can’t use them. In this situation getting urgent help to protect your assets requires the skill of an experienced and specialist, family, finance in divorce (also known as a financial remedy) solicitor.
