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 had a letter from my H sol on friday saying it was inappropriate for my adult children to act as advocates for me and that all neg. should be through sol.
They are both mature adults and trying to stop all their future inheritance going into sol. pockets. They are also trying to be impartial.
If their father didn't like it he could have told them.
Is it fair?

Even if children are young adults it is very heavy burden on such young shoulders to bear such responsibilty.

Please don't take this as me taking sides I am not -it is desirable for neither parent to "involve" the children if possible -just a personal view -others may think otherwise.
