A little more about us
Our Directors Richard Bagguley and Nicola Codd are respected local solicitors with a wealth of experience, supported by an experienced dedicated team of lawyers and administrators.
Baines Bagguley Penhale are well known for their expertise in Divorce and Family Law, Conveyancing and Property Sales and Purchases, Wills, Probate, Powers of Attorney, Commercial Property Transactions and Dispute Resolution.
The Covid-19 Pandemic and resulting Lockdown has meant that we have all had to change our arrangements to keep in touch with family members since the “Staying At Home” announcement by the Prime Minister on 23rd March 2020
Many separated families found this particularly challenging as they tried to maintain stability for children and minimise the anxieties we have all had about keeping within the rules and staying safe whilst taking into account everyone’s varying attitudes to risk.
When separated couples divorce, before they can reach a legally binding agreement about the resolution of financial issues or when a court application is made for financial orders, they both have to provide details of their pensions.
This is a specialist area and we recommend that you seek the advice of an experienced family lawyer and independent financial adviser before making an application to the court or signing an agreement.
