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.

Hi there,
I have been seperated from my husband for nearly a year now.
I was just wondering how I go on with the possible sale of the house.
My son who is 17 still lives at home and is in further education for the next year or so.
I have been told that as long as he lives in the family home, that if me and my husband go to court the house couldnt be sold to pay me out with my share... I have been thinking more on the lines of hubby paying me so much a month so we dont have to sell the house, which would be the best way to go, but that would take years... does anyone know the law and teenagers at home please?

Not enough info to decide

If resources are such you could not rehouse from a mortgage and proceeds then the Crt is unlikely to order a sale

More chance of sale if equity is large and both parties can rehouse from Mortgage and the equity
