DTM Legal specialise in the Agricultural sector and as a consequence of our extensive commercial work with our client we have also undertaken a number of Family Law proceedings with our Agricultural clients. A conventual divorce solicitor will lack experience handling the commercial considerations our clients will face. For matters relating to farming and divorce make DTM Legal your trusted partner.
Considerations for Farming and Divorce
Farming cases are often more complex and difficult than others when considering divorce proceedings.
It may well be that the farm has passed down generations in your family, or you may have married into the farming family and feel vulnerable as to your future.
Very often there will be many years of estate planning and covenants that are in place in terms of how the land can be dealt with.
There may be life interests to consider as well as other ownership issues.
A value of the land and the stock and the businesses will undoubtedly come into question when dealing with farming and divorce. Almost certainly there will be liquidity issues, i.e., how does the money come out of the business to share the asset base.
It may well be that you are a family member who is concerned about the impact of a divorce upon the farm as opposed to the person who is getting divorced. Industry specific advice can be hard to find which is why we recommend speaking to a specialist legal expert.
