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.

Help!!!!!!!!!!!! Can anyone counteract these?

Many many thanks to you all for taking the time to read and respond, I know how heavy going it was for you!:blink:

Fiona, we really would like to be able to afford Legal advice where all this is concerned but unfortunately we cant, any savings we had, have got eaten away some time in the past 3 years with legal fees. Also the trouble now at this late stage is how many hours would it take for a solicitor to get their head round all this? It would do anyones head in!
I think our best bet is to just continue down the same path we did at the other FH and hope for the best with the Judge who seemed extremely switched on, at least this time I can go in with him as an intervenor. (fingers crossed!)
The Judge at last hearing (which will definately be the same one at this hearing, if no ill befalls her!) adjourned it because she wanted 6 questions answering of the pension report they haven't been answered STILL, even though this report cost another £300 plus vat!
Do you think that she will adjourn it again on the principle her questions havent been answered? Or do you think she will make some sort of ruling based on the information she has to hand? But then how can she if she still hasnt got her answers or his ex wifes CETV after she ordered her to get it???
I suppose what will be will be.

Many thanks for your post
We are trying to get them to accept a report based on Stepped accrual instead of their uniform accrual report.

His pension fund manager said.........that the report they base their figures on is not wrong, just inaccurate and the way stepped accrual is worked out is much much fairer. But of course they dont want this as it lowers her part of the percentage.

But hey ho such is life! Also Thanks Sera, i have no idea how that comes into play where all this is concerned but it is helful to have a erm how do u say??? An easier understanding of it instead of all the law talk! lol

Kind ones
Louise :)
