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.

Well the order is legally binding.

If it isnt complied with though nothing automatically happens. You have to go back to court to get them to make another order to enforce the first order.

As to whether you can get a bridging loan, I guess that depends on the financial institution and their attitude to risk and their assessment of the risk that the other party will fail to comply with the court order.

If all your other finances are in order and credit history is good and you find a friendly bank manager in a good mood I reckon you could get a bridging loan.
