During divorce or separation proceedings, sometimes it is necessary to obtain a financial injunction, known as a freezing order, against the other party.
A freezing order is an interim injunction that stop a party from disposing of or dealing with his or her assets.
These can be necessary in cases where it is possible, or likely, that the other party to the proceedings will attempt to dispose of or hide their assets in order to limit their settlement liability when matters proceed to court. In other words, they may try to avoid paying their fair share in relation to any settlement that could be reached.
At FisherWright Solicitors, we are experienced in obtaining freezing orders on behalf of clients, helping to ensure that the other party cannot hide or dispose of their assets in any way.
