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.

OK the $64,000 Question - How do you its over?

Ha ha. Ok wont mention servicing. Problem is if U over rev the engine the damage is done it may cost more to replace than the car is worth. Tin is not like marriage but my point is that people (not all granted) think more of money than they do of each other.

I think its a good idea to have a limited marriage contract. Sort of like a try before you buy. People are not so tolerant as they once were. There are lots of presures put on people. U must perform you must have rampant sex 9 times a night and U have to adore each other all the time. Mariage isnt like that.

People used to have 25 year mariages. I know of one old couple that have been together for 25 years. Its rare nowadays. Divorce rates are 60% and climbing. Divorce rates are up for second time round people. I cant see the point of it all. Why marry at all if you are just gona get shafted at the end? C

........ and like our old comfy slippers, it's what we know, it's what we've relied on, it's the fear of the new, that keeps us maintianing something that could be well past its sell-by date!

It may be repaired for now, it may have it's cracks filled and glossed over. Maybe that'll hold it together for a few more years, and maybe the rust will seep through, and it'll break down again, when you leaset expect it.

So, there's not really an answer to the 64,000 dollar question!
