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.

That will depend on the original agreement

For example it could have stated 'in the event that the house is sold' he would get paid out.

Look up what was agreed or amend any agreement not already enforced

Make sure any agreement states what you want, include clause(s) to apply if the FMH is sold at some future date

If is not acceptable to s2bx then you might have to fight on that

It is very rare to find total amicability in divorce or in sorting out the finances.

Good Luck

another question if i do have to give my ex2b a share of my house for example if he was entitled to 50% do they value the house now say its worth £240,000 and he gets £120,000 when my youngest is 18 or do they value it again when i sell the house like i said when my youngest is 18 and he gets 50% of what its worth then.

basically what im trying to say if the courts say i dont have to give him anything till my youngest is 18 do i have to pay what the percentage is now or when i sell the house in the future

sorry im crap with these things

The fairest way of dealing with any future sale is in percentage terms

Remember house prices can go down as well as up

Fair to both if %
