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 wife left me February 7th 2012
Her solicitor has just filed for divorce 19th march, on reason of unreasonable ground due to my wife not getting on with my 17 year old daughter and causing problems with us. since she has been gone she has apparently been in a relationship with someone else and old fling from 20 years ago she has also had his name tattooed on her wrist he has given her a car with his private reg on and put her on his car insurance. Also his status on face book shows in new relationship since January 2012. Should I accept these unreasonable grounds as I feel she has been seeing him since January before we split but can’t prove this? I have also made offer to buy her out of our marital house which she has not accepted as yet. Think she wants more money I haven’t got,
i have no contact with her direct as she is acting very strange since i found out about this other man.

The reason for the Divorce doesn''t really make any difference so it''s probably best to just accept it as it is.It will save unnecessary costs and it will not affect the financial settlement in any way.The reason for the Divorce is no longer stated on the Decree Absolute so no worries there.
Reaching a Financial Settlement can be tricky but is definitely best to reach it between yourselves if at all possible.It might be worth having an appointment with a Family Law Solicitor to get an understanding of what would be seen as a reasonable settlement for both of you.
If you put more financial details on here someone more knowlegeable than me may be able to an idea of what may be the Financial outcome of a Divorce.
