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.

I have just returned from a meeting with my sol....We discussed proposals for 'spousal support'...
That was one thing which I still have to get my head around...
BUT... my x2b has said, that, while he doesn't have any objections to me remaining in the former matrimonial home until we 'sort' things... he will however, be coming here for the two weeks over christmas while he is on holiday from work - WHAT?????
Now... considering he walked out the door on 20th July .... didn't hear from him for 7 weeks...wiped out our joint account (which he has now stated was a savings account, and it was money he'd saved to buy a new car)... has infact, been having an affair since the 'beginning of the year'....
will he be 'allowed' to come spend christmas with us??????
"more sprouts darling???"
I am aware that, as the house is in x2b's sole name, he has every legal right to enter the house.... but, the thought of having him here is... lets say... terrifying, considering we haven't laid eyes on him for 3 months..
Any suggestions?:(

Thanks Sera and Chris....
Yes, Chris... my sol said she would respond with...'he does infact have somewhere else to go (stated he 'had nowhere else to go')..errrr... how about the girlfriends? - he also has two brothers whom he could spend the holidays with...and if he insists that he is still returning here she will apply for an occupancy order... the only problem I have with that is the time it takes to actually get anything done...

A very strange paragraph was at the bottom of the 3 page letter.... it said "has your client initiated divorce proceedings against our client"... now..a few weeks ago, the same person from the same office wrote to my sol - the letter began.......... "we have been consulted by Mr X regarding the divorce papers served upon him by your client".....
My sol said she would respond by advising them to refer to their own paperwork...
again.... am I missing something here????? :huh:

Just a thought, his solicitor might be trying to get costs awarded against you by claiming you initiated the divorce or could be a simple clerical error.

Okay... please forgive me....
Yes...I did initiate the divorce by filing for UB.... how does that mean that his sol will be attempting to have costs awarded against me???
