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?

Sections 25 -30 of the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006 covers cohabitants rights. There is a link to the legislation at the bottom of the Divorce in Scotland item accessed through the Resources menu on the tool bar above and then Divorce Guide menu.
