Free Webinar for Accountants “Determining Percentage Entitlements in Property Settlement”

There is no 50%/50% presumption or (even) starting point when it comes to how property is divided between divorcing couples. The percentage is determined by looking at the “contributions” each party has made. This is an inexact science and will vary for every couple.

This webinar will look at:

– The main categories of contribution and particularly how “financial and non-financial contributions” are treated.

– What is “future needs” and how is it treated?

– The treatment of gifts, inheritances, personal injury payments, redundancy payments and other common questions.

This presentation will provide easy to understand information and practical tips to demystify this area of family law, and will help you better help your clients.

WHEN: 1-2pm, Tuesday, 31 August 2021. To register, please click here.

Your team’s communication with me was exceptional, I knew exactly what was happening.

Amy, thanks very much to you and your team. Throughout my dealings with MLFL I have been continually impressed with your level of professionalism and, in particular, your understanding of circumstances and the articulate way you conduct yourself. I was completely satisfied with today’s outcome and without your experience and expertise in family law I doubt that the result would have been achieved.
M.R., West End
I always felt that the service provided by Michael Lynch Family Lawyers was of a high standard. Each time, after appointments I came away feeling secure. Keep doing what you are and maintain the ‘family feel’ that permeates your services.
