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.

My husband has petitioned for a divorce but because he does'nt have a good reason he's made up a whole lot of lies. Its really shocked me that he can be so evil in telling these very hurtful lies. He wants out because he wants to live with his girlfriend. What can I do about it?

Tell him he has a vivid imagination and a mental illness and if he ever comes near you again you will kick him in the privates.

No seriously dont worry about it. Thepetition is a private matter only the bored judge will see it for 5 seconds and then grant the divorce after which burn the petition and get on with your new life. B)

I Agree with specialdad. My reasons where all made up. In fact I made them up for her as she had nothing to put down. I just put down opposites. U cant stop the divorce really and its foolish to contest it. Just forget it. As SD says no one will see it. Chris.

Thanks for advice,know you are right but could I put my own reasons down but still let the petition go through or will this just cost more? It'll make me feel better though!

I signed mine on the grounds that they were untrue as well. Falk

It really doesn't matter what the grounds are - in reality if you accept the marriage has broken down and the other party has not claimed costs be positive he has saved you a Court fee of £300:)

If the allegations are lies what you can do rather than defend (waste of time & money for lawyers) is on the Acknowledgement of Service put to the Q'n do you accept the marriage has broken down..."Yes but the allegations of behaviour are exaggerated and/or untrue. Accordingly whilst I accept the marriage has broken down I reserve my position to respond to any of the allegations if later relevant"

Hope this helps
