What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.


is my partner entitled to half my property

Hi. Don''t know how long you have been together but if you are having these thoughts, why on earth have you let her move in? Doesn''t bode well for a happy home. Sorry to be blunt.

My son took a young lady out a couple of times about eighteen months ago. She had three children around the same age as his own children.

One evening she turned up with her daughter and an overnight bag asking if she could stay a few nights.

He said it wouldn''t be possible as his children were due to stay the following night. It put him right off, particularly as she had been telling him how best he could extend his house to make more room.
