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.

Are you overworked Under paid

over-regulated, under-leisured, and under benefited

Take heart Not only could it be worse it has been.

This notice was found in the ruins of a London office building.

It was dated 1852

This firm has reduced the hours of work, and the clerical staff will now only have to be present between the hours of 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. weekdays.

Clothing must be of sober nature. The clerical staff will not disport themselves in raiment of bright colours, nor will they wear hose unless in good repair.

Overshoes and topcoats may not be worn in the office, but neck scarves and headwear may be worn in inclement weather.

A stove is provided for the benefit of the clerical staff.
Coal and wood must be kept in the locker.
It is recommended that each member of the clerical staff bring four pounds of coal each day during the cold weather.

No member of the clerical staff may leave the room without permission from the supervisor.

No talking is allowed during business hours.

The craving for tobacco, wine, or spirits is a human weakness, and as such is forbidden to all members of the clerical staff.

Now that the hours of business have been drastically reduced, the partaking of food is allowed between 11:30 and noon, but work will not on any account cease!!

Members of the clerical staff will provide their own pens. A new sharpener is available on application to the supervisor.

The supervisor will nominate a senior clerk to be responsible for the cleanliness of the main office and the supervisor's private office. All boys and juniors will report to him 40 minutes before prayers and will remain after closing hours for similar work. The owners provide brushes, brooms, scrubbers, and soap.

The owners recognize the wisdom of the new labour laws, but will expect a great rise in output of work to compensate for these near Utopian conditions.

:P
