What Happens If My Spouse Spends Heavily Before Our Divorce To Reduce My Financial Settlement?

Date: July 20th, 2018 - Written by: Brookman Solicitors

  It’s a well-worn divorce cliché. An aggrieved spouse starts to empty joint accounts and spend his or her savings to stop the other benefitting from the money in an imminent divorce settlement. We have already seen that full financial disclosure is required in divorce proceedings. And we have also looked at what happens when… Read the full article

When My Business Partner Divorces Is There A Risk That The Business Could Be Split?

Date: July 12th, 2018 - Written by: Brookman Solicitors

  If you are in business with someone going through a divorce the fear that your co-owner’s changed financial circumstances could threaten your business is understandable. But it’s important to realise that it is difficult for a court to unilaterally make an order in divorce proceedings that could affect third parties such as a business… Read the full article

If I’m Not Happy With My Divorce Outcome, Can I Go Back To Court?

Date: June 15th, 2018 - Written by: Brookman Solicitors

  It can sometimes be that one party in divorce proceedings, upon reflection, feels dissatisfied with the final financial order. Even when the settlement has been reached by consent. But reopening a case is never something to embark on lightly. That’s because the courts in England and Wales put a premium on the principle of… Read the full article

If I Transfer Assets To A Family Member Before Or During Divorce, Could Those Assets Be Included In The Financial Settlement?

Date: May 10th, 2018 - Written by: Brookman Solicitors

  The short answer is yes – they could. There is an obligation on both parties in a divorce to disclose assets fully and frankly. And courts need marital property to be preserved until it reaches a final decision that is fair to both sides. Transfers of assets to family members or third parties before… Read the full article

I wanted to send a deeply personal thank you to Henry & the team at Brookman’s who have helped me through a very difficult time in my life. They have given me a truly personalised service & been incredibly sympathetic and supportive all the way through the process. I cannot thank them enough & would not hesitate in recommending them to others.

Mr Brookman was very thorough, professional and spot on. He understood my requirements, the complexities of the case and has dealt with it superbly. I'm very pleased with the service provided. Thanks very much.

Divorce is not very easy and sometimes one doesn't know what to do but when you have the right people dealing with the matter than it makes it easier.

I was recommended to Henry and initially I was hesitant to use a lawyer for my divorce matter purely because of the costs but in certain circumstances, it is better to go for it. It may seem costly but one doesn't have a choice.

The initial appt gives one an opportunity to hear the lawyer out and then to ask questions relevant to one's case.

The service was great - Thank you

I want to highly commend Brookman Solicitors firm. I had the privilege of getting very thorough and sensible advice from their solicitor Jennifer Douglas. I don't have enough praise for her. She made me feel at ease and 'got me' and understood very well all the issues and her advice was on point. I felt she had my interest at heart in all the different matters. She was very accommodating and willing. She truly made a difference. She has great insight and I truly recommend her and the firm. They are very professional with the human touch.

I am so happy that I hired their services. I am from India and it was my international divorce case. My ex husband is in the UK. I had a free telephone conversation with Henry Brookman and I was so satisfied that without even meeting him I was so confident. My case was handled in the best way possible.

He is probably the one of the best lawyers in the world. He is extremely competent, professional, intelligent and empathetic. The only lawyer who genuinely work to help you rather than making money. He is a very experienced lawyer and he saved me so much money. He is so calm and kind towards his approach. He is the most genuine person I have come across.

I just came to London once to attend my hearing. My husband and his solicitors made it so complicated. My ex husband has to spend double the amount of legal fees than me. This is the difference between hiring a good experienced lawyer. Their fees might be expensive but good lawyer will make you save money at the end. Finally at the end I won the case and my husband has to pay all my legal fees without me travelling to the UK. I will always be eternally grateful to Henry Brookman and Brookman Solicitors. I am falling short of words to praise them.

I highly recommend their services. Keep up the good work.
