We frequently find that divorce solicitors undervalue pensions, businesses and other assets when advising about a divorce. If your divorce solicitor incorrectly valued any of the matrimonial assets in your divorce you may have lost thousands of pounds as a result. Our aim is to:
- Establish if your divorce settlement was under valued
- Make a claim against your divorce solicitor (your ex-spouse will not be contacted)
- Recover your shortfall
- Your former spouse will never be contacted or involved at all

The Court of Appeal has another case to examine in the near future. Paul Mansfield reckons that after 26 years of marriage the settlement awarded to his ex wife Jane is too much because the land and farms originated from his father Buddy and he therefore should get more than her. We think that Mr Mansfield will find that whatContinue reading
We listened to Katie on LBC this morning when she was talking about ‘special contributions’ to matrimonial assets and taking side with Randy Work and Ryan Giggs. She and several people who phoned in also complained that wives who stay at home to manage the home and bring up the children should not receive 50% of the assets in normalContinue reading
Mr Giggs seems to think that he may be able to secure more than 50% of the matrimonial assets when the Gigg’s divorce hits the Courts shortly according to media reports. Brilliant a footballer as he was we don’t think that the Courts will be too impressed by that argument. However we shall see…………………! Watch this space!
Mr Work’s attempt to get more of the matrimonial assets from his failed marriage misfired last week at the Supreme Court. The starting point for any division of matrimonial assets is 50/50 according to White v White in the House of Lords decision in Oct 2000. Chris Hohn’s High Court settlement in 2004 gave him more assets than his wife.Continue reading
Divorcees have had some more good news this week! An investment banker who gambled away nearly all of the family fortune and then lied to the Court has been told that a pension based in India must be shared with his ex wife. The decision is seen as being a first as normally overseas pensions are untouchable. In Briers vContinue reading

Mr Justice Holman in the High Court recently decided that the matrimonial assets of Mr Work and his wife, Mandy Gray, should be divided equally rather than a larger share for Mr Work which he was seeking from the Court. After 20 years together UK Courts normally spilt assets on a 50/50 basis unless in exceptional circumstances such as inContinue reading

I really appreciate the time and effort you have made on my behalf. I never truly understood what the financial position was regarding my husband’s pension. Your clarity and guidance has made me realise how bad the original settlement was. With your help, I am confident I will recover the financial losses I have suffered.
My divorce was a nightmare. It is only now I realise how bad my solicitors were. Thank you so much for all the help that you have given to me. I have now secured the fair result I was denied by my original legal team.
I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done. You have recovered so much money on my behalf. This has restored my faith in the British justice system. Thank you so much.
Discovering Divorce Lifeline gave the courage to ‘open up the can of worms’ and pursue the reimbursement I was entitled to. It’s a great pity that I didn’t know of their existence back in 2006 when I got divorced, because I think they would have won the case for me back then. Their support over the whole process this past year has been exemplary.
Thank you so very much for everything that you have done in regards to my mum’s divorce settlement. It would be a very sad world indeed if there weren’t people like you who are willing to stand up for what is right and to act for those who have been wronged. We are so very grateful that you have kept trying so hard to help my mum and we are eternally grateful.
My former solicitors originally recovered £5,000 from my husband’s pension and told me it was a fair deal. Your support in fighting for justice on my behalf has been wonderful. I now have a further £50,000 and I cannot express my gratitude enough. You have been so supportive all the way – thank you so very much.
