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.

Thanks for all the advice re Living together. I have taken advice and acted accordingly.However a further issue has arisen. My girlfriends ex husband 2b is claiming to have moved out from his girlfriends and now living elsewhere but she knows this is not true. What are the reasons behind him claiming this?

He is most likely trying to avoid the courts using his GF's resources, during the 'Ancillary Relief' process

The court can take into account his GF's income and expenditure when determining a financial settlement.

E ery time I come on here and read through the posts I find something useful for me.
My ex moved in with another woman who is on an excellent salary, similar to him. So when we come to any financial settlement for me, will her income have to be taken into account then ?

Annie,
I think it is more of a question of are his living needs reduced because of his cohabitation with her, so therefore is his disposable income higher?

I don't think that her income is directly taken into account.
