Financial Orders are court orders that can help you to recover any assets which are rightfully yours after a divorce.

After a divorce, there are occasions when a party to the divorce proceedings has to apply to court to enforce an order made within financial proceedings where their ex-spouse has failed to comply with the terms of the financial settlement. There can be various reasons why their spouse is failing to pay, but whatever the reason we can assist you to seek enforcement of a financial order and help you recover what’s lawfully yours.

The court has a wide range of powers to deal with the breach of a court order, including:

  • A Charging Order: to secure payment against a property or other type of securities including stocks and shares
  • Attachment of Earnings Order: this type of action recovers payment directly from the non-paying party’s employer
  • Third Party Debt Order: the most common form of this order is against bank or building society accounts, but the order is obtainable against any third party
  • Order to Obtain Information: if you are unsure of an individual’s assets, we can consider an application to court where the individual would have to attend court for questioning about their finances.
