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.

I'm 60.We were married for 30 years - he left to live with a younger woman he worked with.
I got 70% of the house 40% of his pension and roughly one third of his current net salary of £5k a month as spousal maintenance - not index linked - which ceases on his retirement.
At the moment I'm still trying to figure out what best to do with my share of the pension but it looks as though when he retires my income will drop to around £10,000 a year including State Pension.
Still trying to sell the house.
