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 going to court over a Financial Settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support for people who are going to court over a fair financial settlement, for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

In the breakdown of how much a divorce will cost with wikivorce, there is no mention of the divorce petition Court fee of £410. I take it this is to be paid as well as the £550 and £50?

Many thanks

The current court fee for a divorce petition is £550, it was previously £410 so this amount isn't payable, just the current court fees. (the £50 fee is for a Consent Order)
