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 think someone's kidding you on, marriages conducted in one part of the UK are valid in other parts. In fact legal marriages from many other countries are recognised too. Marriage must be between two otherwise unmarried people.

Just to clarify, England and Scotland are different countries, each with their own legal system and both forming part of the state of the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland. The Act of Union 1707 guarantees the continued existence of a separate legal system for Scotland.
