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?

Frankly, no ! The changes seem to me purely cosmetic when what is needed is a much more comprehensive reform.

Absolutely - I don't know how big a cash cow divorce is for the jobbing solicitor and the court system but I guess it's a reliable income stream.
I know people would complain at simple cut and dried rules that adversely affected them but I can't help thinking that nothing will change until we change it.
