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.

Went to see my sol on Friday and explained about my wifes affair etc. and he asked if I had moved out. I said no and he said I think you should as it would make it easier. Hold on a minute!! Why should I move out? Ok yes she has a 16 year old son but the house was mine before I married, it’s in my name only and it wasn’t me who jumped into someone else’s bed!!
I have asked her to move out but she said she can’t afford to, so what would you suggest I do ?

Seems you have 2 choices broken,

1. Tough it out until you resolve financial matters amicably, and she moves on. Very stressful

or

2. Move out and risk her getting a residence order on the house, or applying for a charge on the property to stop you selling it

What are your longer term plans? To keep that house or move on?

I'm planning to move on, Can I just put the house on the market now as it's in my name?

So put it on the market, but don't complete the sale until you have the mediation agreement in place.

What ever you do dont move out. You will find it very hard to get back in. I would get another sol. I would set a date when she should move out. It was your house before and it will be yours after. If you move out and then you somehow manage to get back in later you may find your home trashed. Stay put. Chris
