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.

i have been in the process of divorcing my STBx since 2017 due to his refusal to engage. i am a LIP - after receiving the Decree Nisi and panicking thinking he was not going to be able to have half it not all of my finances (which are nothing but equity in the home and my small pension) he decided to get a solicitor. i have sent him a financial settlement proposal with a deadline of today - after continuing to delay and delay asking irrelevant questions after the financial exchange he has again refused to respond to the proposal (another delay) until i answer a question about the house valuation (which i have already answered previously). this is another way to try and maintain control over me with this constant delay can i request from the courts that he pay the court costs?

can i proceed with the absolute as the day to apply is today and i need to end this marriage as a matter of urgency for my own mental health.
