Frequently asked questions.

I suspect that my partner is hiding some of their wealth, what can I do?

If you suspect that your partner is concealing some of their wealth, Cartwright King can help you get the right information, review it and prove that they are hiding finances or assets. 

You are entitled to see and scrutinise all bank account and credit card statements that your partner has received over the past 12 months, or longer, if justified. Having dealt with many high net worth divorce cases, we have a proven track record of identifying attempts made by individuals to conceal some of their wealth.

How can I prevent further claims against my wealth?

Transparency is the key to protecting yourself from future claims against your wealth. If you’re not honest about your finances or assets initially and they are later discovered, your former partner is entitled to make a new claim against what you concealed.

Keeping a record of your financial circumstances and how you acquired your wealth – even after your divorce – is a good way to protect yourself against future claims.

As your divorce is being finalised, you can apply for a Clean Break Order to safeguard you against new claims.

I have a business, will this be affected by my divorce?

It is highly unlikely that a business will be divided or sold as part of a divorce settlement, though it is treated as an asset and taken into account by the Court.

Under current laws, it’s preferable for a business to remain unaffected as much as possible, not only to protect its value, but to ensure that employees are protected.

If you’re the business owner, or the person that oversees most of the day-to-day operations, it is likely that you will retain the company following your divorce.

However, should you retain the business, it’s likely that your partner may be awarded a greater share of any other assets such as cash, investments and property to ensure that a settlement is fair. 

If other assets fail to amount to a fair settlement, your partner may be entitled to a share of the business.
