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.


Pre-emptive acrion ?

NO NO NO

You must make a full and honest disclosure........if you are caught out concealing assets don't complain if the Court "draws adverse inferences" and treats you harshly....The Court of Appeal have said there is no appeals from that

We had a plonker against us a H who claimed he had 4 properties...we found 48 in London -it cost him many million as the Court concluded much of what we found amounted to 50% and W should get 50% so H got his comeuppances!!

Please, please don't tell porkies or hide assets you will likely get caught out and if you do it is "litigation conduct"= first off the DJ will likely make you pay the other side's legal costs to date!!
Conservatively that cost him

Ironic you know last month we put my mums flat in my name only because she felt my sister and her hubby could be a bit rocky and here we are. What a mess it could be.

Nightmare do you realise she will be taxed on a deemed income the property could be rented for..

Who allowed that to happen -should be suing the Conveyancing solicitor for negligence!!! especially if he/she knew or ought to have asked if you were separated and divorcing!!

My mum will be in need of the income and it is known about the potential tax but shouldn't be too much as she only gets £91 pension. Also , sods law my situation developed after change of ownership. Seen Sol. today about mums other concerns and had a quiet word. In the worse case scenario I could be well a truly in trouble but if that scene arises then I would hope sols can sort things with my mum in mind. My wife is not nasty just no love anymore.
