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.

It sometimes can happen that a judge will not accept a draft Consent Order submitted to him for approval.

In that case, (s)he will explain what the problem is and if you are happy with whatever is proposed, then the order can be approved there and then. But if not - well, you have to consider the matters raised and you may even have to re-negotiate.
