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.

Is there any benefit to me siting adultery as the reason for divorce or does it make no difference at all?

No real difference

Court not really bothered what ground really.

Remember though a great deal of discretion is given to Courts on finances..

It may be naive but if a female DJ deciding a financial case sees H has committed adultery and perhaps is a violent individual do we really believe the same result if it were a 2 year sep case? Perhaps it would be:)

It is argued that in the event spouse cannot pay costs adultery is sometimes used citing the Co Respondent and claiming costs against him or her. That often complicates matters and raises the "temperature" though!!

ok, so if male judge deciding sees wealthy wife commiting adultery, can the financial decision be affected?
