Common divorce agreements

Divorce Solicitor in London

In an ideal world, we would all be able to put aside disagreements and make practical arrangements at the end of a marriage that are agreeable to everyone and support the lifestyles of both parties. In practice, this is rarely possible. That’s because the issues are often complex and require negotiation and compromise in emotional circumstances. That’s where we come in.

Saracens Solicitors is a legal firm based in the West End. Among other services, we offer people the possibility of working with a divorce solicitor in London who is committed to conflict-free resolutions to difficult separation issues.

There are some agreements that are commonly made during the process of divorce. Solicitors in London, like Saracens Solicitors, are used to overseeing and making these kinds of arrangements.


When a marriage ends, there can be some financial inequality that exists between the parties. This is often because one has invested their time in the house, children or supporting the career of the other. It is usually seen as reasonable that a divorce agreement redresses that balance by offering financial compensation to the disadvantaged party. There are a number of ways that this can be arranged. For example, there might be a lump sum payment that clears everything up or there could be an ongoing financial arrangement that is often known as maintenance. Saracens Solicitors can help you figure out which one might suit your circumstances when we are acting as your divorce solicitor in London.

Child residency

Deciding what will happen to children during a divorce is usually a top priority. It may be clear which parent the children will live with and priority is almost always given to the mother. However, access arrangements for the other parent can be legally agreed on as well. Even if the split is reasonably amicable, it can still be useful to have an agreement in place so that everyone has clarity now and in the future.


Although not strictly a divorce agreement, a prenuptial is something that is commonly brought into force at the end of a marriage. It is an agreement made before marriage about what will happen to certain assets or items in the event of a divorce.
