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 sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

does anyone know how the courts see co-habitation.
prior to marriage we began seeing each other and then lived together in 03 until 04 when we split for 3 months and i was seeing someone else. we had broken off our engagement and we did not see each other during this time. we got back together after this time and got engaged again 3 months later and immediately married, splitting 4 months later; no one else involved. i know stupid but i was in the middle of a break down and that is my excuse for being stupid. he is claiming we were together a year before we met and so 3 year cohabitation. would the court consider the 3 months separation and therefore 4 months cohabitation or ignore it and make it 1 3/4 years?
FDR today a watse of time as he wouldn't speak to me and judge wouldn't deal with issues other than to tell him to disclose.
