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.

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.

Arbitration is a form of dispute resolution in which the parties appoint an arbitrator to adjudicate their dispute and make an award which is legally binding. It can be used to resolve financial matters, and in some child matters. Generally it much quicker than contested hearings via the Family Court. However, unlike court applications for which you just pay an initial court fee, you have to pay for arbitration, which can cost a few thousand pounds. Both parties have to be willing to attend arbitration.

More info can be found from the Institute of Family Law Arbitrators - ifla.org.uk/
