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.

my new partner left her husband for me in october. he has sent in papers for the divorce and she wants to sell the matrimonial home. she has always paid the mortgage and has continued to pay it. they are both teachers but she earns more. he wants to move his new partner into the matrimonial home. he has said he will pay half the mortgage [300] but my partner is to pay the rest. the questions are 1) should my partner be paying anything? 2) if she refuses to pay what will happen? 3) if her ex2b's new partner moves in does she has any rights? 4) what happens if the house needs to be sold? thanking you in advance

whose name is the house in ? who signed the mortgage? If they are both on the mortgage then I think they are both liable to keep paying- If the house is in her name only than sorry it's up to her to pay the mortgage and sort it out with her ex If she refuses to pay she will in default bad move -

the house and the mortgage are in both their names. the problem is that if he moves his new partner in my partner gets nothing from the value of the house and pays for the priviledge of them cohabiting. this seems a bit strange to me.

so if the house is in both their names she still needs to pay her share . She needs to get him and his new partner to buy her out and take over her share of the mortgage. She needs to let the mortgage company know asap what has happened and that he has a "lodger" which is against their rules. She can refuse to pay her share but a court will probably say she is still liable.Best to seek legal advice really good luck
