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.

i paid for a doctors letter stating my health situation which was given to the judge along with my domestic abuse team letter, but i still had to be on camera (zoom court) with my ex.
ive been told i have to go to court again and speak.
i have a history of depression and sucide attempts, last attempt was after the zoom call.....i just cant cope with how my ex is being....it should be so straightforward, but he has aquired debts since i left and hes trying to say they are matrimonial.
ive told my solicitor my ex can have everything, there is no way i can see my ex or even hear his voice....it makes me so anxious.
i was originally told as i was under domestic abuse i wouldnt ever have to face him in mediation so why now do i have to do this.
im petrified.
