Divorce is classed as one of the top two most stressful life events which is why it’s important to find ways to make the process as straightforward as possible. As a family law barrister, Andrew Nixon is regularly briefed in all forms of financial remedy work including without notice and contested injunctions. Noted for his preparation and attention to detail, he provides advice and representation in a broad range of cohabitation, civil partnership and marriage cases.
His cases involving limited intangible assets, including bankruptcy cases, have afforded him an experience which complements that which he has gained from his complex and substantial financial provision cases. Andrew’s clients are reassured by his approach which is characterised as attempting to secure a practical and cost-effective resolution to the financial issues, whilst respecting that for some clients there is sometimes an emotive need to be heard on an issue and to litigate.
Cohabitation finances, financial remedy and financial order work that Andrew can advise and assist with are as follows:
- Financial issues relating to Civil Partnership, Marriage, Cohabitation and Engagement
