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.

Wills, what to do?

Can anyone shed some light on what I need to do regarding my will? At present my will would state all my monies would go to ex. Do i need to change this or do this get done automatically when partners split.

We were never married but have 2 small children.

She had many affairs.

Thanks TEIN.

I have had to do this, will is invalidated after Absolute, but as you are not married this does not count, therefore probably best to do a new one.
Can be expensive @ Solicitors, you can get Law Society approved forms @ reasonable price from Lawpack on internet, they come with full instructions.
It may be worth doing generic Power of Attoney and Lasting Power of Attoney @ same time, in favour of an adult that you trust, I assume children are under age of majority.
I hope this helps.
