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.

:SHelp I am confused!!!

After a discussion with my OH last night we have definatly decided to call it a day. His response was to say that he would get legal advice at work and get a LETTER OF HONOR written. He is a very clever man with a very good job and I think he is trying to baffle me with big words..... I have never heard of one of these and neither has anyone else i have asked, can someone please shed some light on this for me? He has asked me to trust him!!!(not likely)

Never heard of it - it sounds like something from the eighteenth century. I would go for a formal Separation Agreement drawn up by solicitors for both sides, at the very least.

:unsure:...sounds like an American PlayStation Game:

FULL METAL HONOR / MEDAL OF HONOUR (English sp = honoUr)

Sounds like his bollx is up his bum!

Wait until it arrives. It certainly doesn't sound like something to do with the Legal proceedures of Divorce.

Nothing is resolved Financially unless you each agree, and then best to have a Solicitor overlook it, and draw it up into a legal, binding agreement. Or until a judge makes an Order.

Plenty of equal brains on this forum, and some good legal ones too. Don't let his grey-matter intimidate you, you're in good company here! :)

Think the politest word I can come up with is what a load of tosh :-), but it could be a letter of honour for how much a wonderful wife he thinks you are :-)but what ever I dont think Id take much notice unless it has a super dooper large 6 fig cheque pinned to it :-)

So curios was I; that I 'googled' Letter of Honour; and all the search came up with was indeed examples whereby indivicuals had been highly praised for whatever it was they were being Honoured for.

..and Cambridge Dictionary says this:

tosh =

nonsense:
