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.

Have been separated for 9 months.

It has taken this long for my solicitor to say she is @Issuing@ today. My husband will not disclose his finances as he is a very high earner and he also @got rid@ of 122 thousand from selling a joint property.

I am on benefits but still in FMH, which he is still paying for.

Married 22 years, he 44 me 43, 2 kids, boy 21 girl 14, both still living with me.

Am I doing the right thing in letting my solicitor 'Issue'?

I would guess that your solicitor is 'issuing' divorce proceedings to the court.

This is the formal start of the divorce process.

You may find it helpful to read the Wikivorce step-by-step guide to divorce. It is accessed through the 'Resources' menu at the top of the page.

Best of luck
