Dividing and protecting your assets. We are members of Resolution.
If you’re planning a divorce, dividing your finances is often one of the most stressful and disputed parts of the process.
Your goal is to reach an agreement about how you’ll split your assets and any debt. It’s easier if you can do this between yourselves.
We can make your agreement legally binding through a consent order. This makes it enforceable if your ex-spouse or civil partner changes their mind in the future. If you’re unable to agree between yourselves, we can help through mediation, negotiation or a roundtable meeting. It doesn’t have to be a battle and using a solicitor doesn’t mean you have to go court.
What Am I Entitled To?
There’s no set formula, rules or entitlement for dividing finances on divorce. The goal is to reach a fair settlement for everyone. Any financial settlement (the agreement between you and your spouse to separate your money and assets) is based on your situation. Book our free 15 minute consulation to understand your options.

How Can A Clean Break Order Help?
And because there is no time limit for making a financial claim, your ex can make an application many years after you finalise your divorce. For example, if you win the lottery or your business makes a profit, your ex-spouse could file a claim.
A Clean Break Order does exactly what it says…it gives you a clean break from your spouse. This is a future protection tool – it’s useful if you don’t have any assets and both agree to the order.

Even though I was based in London, SKB Law were extremely sensitive, vigilant and thorough with my divorce proceedings. I had a devious and tricky ex, so it was incredibly stressful. SKB were very understanding and supportive as I was very nervous and emotional, this made me feel very supported and empowered. I’m super happy with my result and will certainly be returning to them for any future advice and have already recommended them to others.
My first experiance with SKB law was very good. I was greeted by very Polite, curteous young woman by the name of Mahnoor, she listened very calmly to my whole situation and advised me accordingly. It was a totally diffrent experiance to what i had earlier that day with a Birmingham based Law firm earlier that day but Mahnoor service would definately recommend and if all staff members at SKB law are the same its a winning firm. Mahnoor was not the pushy Solicitor telling to to book into a consultation which would cost you hundreds of pounds but handled things more ethnically so well done Mahnoor ambassador for SKB law.
Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value
SKB law are very professional and efficient, I have used them on a few occasions, on family and immigration related matters.I feel the attention to detail is on point, together with the level of service and communication received. I have never been disappointed and would definitely recommend them to friends and family. Keep up the good work.
