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.

Can anyone tell me what it means when a judge rules that this case is not a "needs case"?

I'm not sure that is a ruling - it looks more like a comment.

I would guess that the judge is saying that there is enough assets/income in this case to meet the needs of both parties and the dispute is over how much each party gets of the surplus assets and income.

Whereas most cases are 'needs based' as there is barely enough to meet the needs of both parties.
