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.

This does not feel like a Good Friday. I am all alone and sad and depressed. Is this how the rest of my life will be ?? Son and Daughter are out and have their own lives anyway now, I am so depressed. I cant even get out to do shopping at the moment as my sister's car is off the road so I dont even have any special food in. I do have some hot cross buns though LOL but normally we would have had a fried breakfast or possibly hot cross buns and a special day together as a family, maybe a meal out ......

that will never happen again :(

I've been so upbeat and positive lately, almost looking forward to when I spring my surprise on him LOL but sometimes the reality of my new situation and lifestyle comes and bites me on the backside :(

I know there are hundreds of others like me out there now so my thoughts and love are with you all and hope we can come through this time stronger :)

I'm sharing the misery with you Lady. I have just made some Easter nest cakes-because I always do!! The only thing that's different is that I've made them on my own as the house is empty! Keeping this site up for company!!!
Take care

Ooooh! donnylass, send me some over - I can't make those. Can't see STBX dropping me any over with my Easter egg either :laugh:

It is quiet and lonely, but use that time to reflect on how life should be going forwards and make some plans maybe?

Next Easter bungee jumping in New Zealand? Wrestling Alligators? Doing some Voluntary work?

Loneliness can be a killer, but there is a big world out there to immerse ourselves in. But I know it is so hard to get motivated.

Lucky for me I am busy with my hotel this year, because otherwise I am sure I would be very down too.

Here's to a better one next year. ;)

Hi Lady
I wonder why you stop your family activities. Why you do not just continue celebrating the occasions the way you used to do before. You still a family although he is not with you. I think that your daughter and son will not mind that if you incourage doing so and they will feel more bounded when you join every body for an outing at least on occasions. You will also injoy your time witk them as well. I think it is a very valuable time for all of you and an occasion to have family gathering.
Take care

I dont have anyone to be with today, it isnt like I can go with my children. One was working and the other was out with his girlfriend. I'm not going to tag along like a gooseberry LOL They still live at home, but the whole day was just depressing. I cant go out or travel so never did go anywhere. That's what makes it worse as I am totally trapped at home :(
