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.

As far as I can gather negotitaion can be held in seperate rooms if there is the space if not then ask to be placed where he cant give you the evil eye :-), Im on my umpteenth cancelation, so I hope judge is looking into why the other side keeps cancelling 3 days before the case is about to be heard.

There is no reason why you have to be in the same room as him, unless you are seeing the judge.

I did not go to my partner's FDR, as I thought it would be more trouble than it was worth in terms of his ex. She brought along people for "support" though - although they weren't allowed in to hear the judge either.
