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.

Hello Angel

What a judge orders is basically law and must be complied with to refuse an order of court is to be in contempt of court.

For a barrister to help they would need to prove the judge had made an error in law or the order was unfair in the extreme.............in short the judges order will stand.

A barrister can put a case coherently, even eloquently, even though there are just as many duff barristers are there are duff soliciors.

However, a barrister can't make bricks out of hay.

Hi Angel,

A well presented argument may make a difference but barristers are not the only ones capable of doing so...albeit many like to think they are...some blow so much hot air charging a fortune to do so and pissing off the judge at the same time! Good luck.
