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.

Apart from engaging a forensic accountant are there any tried and tested ways of ensuring you've got full disclosure of all income and assets before signing the Consent Order.
Will form E documents if properly disclosed always give full disclosure?
For example if someone is employed and pays tax via PAYE is the P60 always the full story - what employment income if any isn't on the P60?
Are pensions sure to be visible on the documents required with form E?
If I give my partner's name or his cohabitant's name to the Land Registry will they tell me what properties they own?
What about shares - is there a legitimate way to check whether someone owns shares and how many?
Is there any way a spouse can find out if their partner has life insurance and who is the named beneficiary.
Does the divorce law/ancillary relief protocol give solicitors wider/stronger rights to delve into someone's finances at the point of divorce?

No, but their knowledge and experience of procedures, presenting cases and cross examining are more likely to produce a result..
