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.

FDR in a few days and the other side have declared they need an extra bedroom in their 'property needs' so they can (continue) to work part time (currently not from home) and look after the child they have with their new partner. So asking for 3 bedrooms instead of 2.
Will the court entertain that as a 'need'?

Unlikely over and above your needs.

The first question is whether a 50:50 split of capital assets would be enough to house you both in a property to meet your essential needs.

Thank you. That's what I was hoping. 50/50 doesn't meet either parties basic needs without further support from new partners, so hopefully the barristers will argue out something fair.
