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.

Found the quote below on another site and thought it quite true to life.
I was recently thinking of all the things i have done (or havent done) that i regret over the last 5 years. Moving away from home to live with my partner (now hubby) too soon, not being there for my daughter enough, not putting my money aside and putting it all into the marriage, selling the only house i have ever truely loved etc etc etc. This puts it all into perspective. I can always start over again and money isnt everything, just have to believe, be stong and see it all as a new start, a new era, a new beginning. Life is for living and we are only on this planet once, there is no dress rehearsal. Seems eaiser said than done i know, but i am going to keep the quote below in my mind and hope it will help me choose the right direction.

''People often take longer to get over their divorce because they are bitter that their ex has taken the best years of their lives and then dumped them. Rather than moving on and embracing the pleasures of each decade they look back with regret that their best years have been diminished. Accepting that each decade supplies its own pleasures and rewards and seeking them out is the key to resolving this battle with your lost past. It's not wasted or ruined it's simply gone. As is everyone else's. All you have is now, and perhaps tomorrow, and the only thing preventing you making this the best year of your life is your own perception''.

Wow just sums the last three years for me, thankfully now moved on and realised that I am the only one that can make that move happen and I have.
