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 don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.

Maybe I’m being cynical but surely Valentine’s is about more than just a card, its about making that special effort to show someone you love them dearly. I’m not currently in a relationship and while I’m not expecting to be giving or receiving any Valentine’s cards, I do expect – hope – to be celebrating it in the future (not bloody likely after this rant!).

Valentine’s Day has gone the same way as Christmas, it has been hijacked to supply the paper market. Saint Valentine used to be the patron saint of lovers, now he seems to be the patron saint of card makers.

Anyway in the hope of raising a smile for everyone on the journey called divorce I have added a few bits below that dear friends have sent to me to cheer me up in time for tomorrow and hope they can make you smile too:

VALENTINE'S DAY SMILES

A rose can say I love you,
Orchids can enthrall,
But a weed bouquet in a grubby fist,
Oh my, that says it all!



Q: What did the boy octopus say
to the girl octopus on Valentine's Day?



A: I want to hold your hand, hand,
hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand.


Q: What did the valentine card say to the stamp?


A: Stick with me and we'll go places!



Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Olive.
Olive who?
Olive you

Did you know you keep me awake at night ?
Thinking of lying here holding you tight
I imagine your body and my lips exploring
But knowing my luck you would be too busy snoring



Men are like holly that’s been recently picked
So handle with care to avoid getting pricked

Wherever you are in your journey remember Valentines Day is just another day and maybe next year who knows what may be ........ :kiss::kiss:
