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.


Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Yesterday I had a haring regarding occupation order - I had never been to a court before in my life. I felt like I was a criminal. My husband has a QC lawyer/barrister. I felt so cornered ... My husband has an big empty flat 10 min walk from family home and the only thing he had to say is that he has tenants in the flat. My stbx says he has no money to move however he is paying for a QC Lawyer :blink:and on the top of it he asks for an independent professional in order to replace CAFCASS ... a professional that his lawyers are used to ... and all the judge say is "well, if he is available ..." call him. Do I have a say at all? I start to get in despair ...

Hi There,
I asked for an occupation order because I have been leaving through hell for last 3 years - and he has an big empty flat 5 min walking from family house. By the end of cout hearing all I managed to get was an order saying I keep staying in the room I used to share with my 4 years old daughter (for past 3 years) and that I had to get all my belongings from 7 years of leaving together to my daughters room (which is the size of his current bathroom :ohmy:.

I got another lawyer I hope my situation will improve ...

Are you working? Can you afford legal representation? I only ask because there is a possibillity that you can apply for Maintenence pending Suit/periodic payments, which are basically spousal maintenence paid by him to you until a final order is made at the final hearing
