Finance and Property
What if my former partner lies about their money?
It is a condition of agreeing to mediation that you both undertake to make full and frank disclosure of your financial positions. In mediation we ask you to complete detailed statements about your financial positions and where necessary produce documents to substantiate what you say. We give you the opportunity of questioning each other and of asking for relevant documents to be produced. We will discuss with you the most sensible way of valuing complex assets like private businesses, and encourage you to seek legal advice where appropriate. Any agreement you reach in mediation will only become legally binding after you have taken legal advice and signed the appropriate legal documents, which should be drafted by solicitors. However, if it subsequently transpires that someone has lied about their financial position, the agreement may be set aside.

“I would like to thank both you and Lucy for such a positive experience, despite the outcome not being as I had hoped. You were both so very kind and I have already recommended your service to a family. One thing I lacked before I cam was the understanding/knowledge that I would be treated fairly in this process. It was so positive and the experience very “gentle” and thoughtful.”
