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.

Hi. I committed adultery so my wife has grounds to divorce me, but she won''t. We have lived apart for 18 months and she now has a regular boyfriend with whom she has sex, so can I divorce her on the grounds of her adultery, even though I did it first??

The simple answer is yes, but you would need proof, that would be a child, a confession or some rather explicit photos.

If you wait 6 months you could use 2 years seperation as grounds but that requires your wife to agree to the divorce, or you could use Unreasonable Behaviour as the grounds.

Use unreasonable behaviour - cite the sort of things that prompted you to go else where in the first place: lack of communication, lack of intimacy etc.
