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.

Wonder if anyone can give their thoughts to my current situation. Both myself and my soon to be ex have moved out of the FMH. We have no children. STBX has committed adultery and I will be divorcing him on these grounds. Only joint asset is the FMH which will be put up for sale soon. Once this has completed we'll have no financial responsibility to eachother. Contents of the house will either be sold as part of the sale or we'll be spliting them up/selling them. Once this is completed how difficult will it be for me to do a DIY divorce and save some pennies. Can it really be just a 'paper exercise' ?
Thanks in advance
