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.

Actually I disagree there!!

I let properties for landlords and usually the worlds worst tenants are women. They are lazy, they leave their clothes everywhere, they leave hairpins in their pockets which muck up the washing machine, make-up stains all over the carpet, burn marks on carpets from hair straighteners and so the list goes on...........

Now, I would say that 75% of the lads that rent rooms keep theirs really tidy. The cleaning lady says she gets more pleasure from cleaning the house that has all the lads in than the house that has all the girls in. There is another house that has 4 lads and 1 girl (wow I hear all the males on this site say - lucky lads!!!)BUT as lovely as she is as a person and so sweet butter wouldn't melt oh disaster when she leaves her bedroom door open all the clutter spills out into the hallway!!!!!!!!!!

By the way I'm a women and I have to say that when you are at home with the kids somehow every day blends into the next and you do seem to feel you have all the time in the world to get jobs done whereas when you go out to work you have to prove yourself within a time limit so have to be more organised. Mostly women do become bored at home and get into a bit of a rut so it does become very appealing to go out and meet friends for lunch or a coffee just to break the boredom and confines of being at home.

I was one of the lucky ones I was able to juggle work with kids with home although the only reason I made that happen WAS because of my short spell as a housewife which I openly admit I absolutely hated with avengeance!!! Going out to work makes you feel wanted and special and gives you a purpose and a reason to get up in the morning and get dressed!!

By the way, childbirth is painful but I was always told that it had to be so as to make you appreciate having the baby. It's unfortunate women were dished out with the hormones that we have, men think we use them as excuses but trust me we would sometimes rather not have them. I would love any man to go through PMT, Childbirth or Menopause they wouldn't last 5 minutes lets face it look what they are like when they get Man flu.........ha ha ha

Trouble is that is down to women!! We bring them into the world, we mother them so when they grow up and get married they expect their wives to replace their mother but who looks after us??? When we get flu we are expected to just get on with it!!!!! Nobody mothers us you don't hear it get called "Women flu" We just get accused of PMT!!!!!!

Ha ha ha ha I like this.........this could go on for weeks still at least it takes all your minds off divorce for a while..........or may answer some of your questions as to why you are divorcing!!!!

Keep the ball rolling.......................

If you get the 'flu, I'll look after you!

You think PMT is bad? It's men who are at the receiving end of it. You women dish it out and us men have to grit our teeth and bear it ... or take up golf.

As for the menopause, surely all those hot flushes are a blessing in this cold weather?

Funny this should come up, earlier I was discussing women and parallel parking with someone and joked why did they think my first job was developing radar and sonar!:cheer:

Very much depends on people seeing what they want to see, and noticing what will support their beliefs and predjudices. Where there are differences I see no reason why they can't be complementary.

Although there are obvious physiological differences, scientifically there seems little evidence to suggest the differences in how we think and feel are that great. For example, it's now recognised that the impact of different wiring of the brain on thinking is effected to some degree by hormones. On almost everything that can be measured the psychological differences between people of the same sex are bigger than the average differences between men and women.

I think the traditional arrangements between men and women are no longer acceptable to many people, but the trouble is we haven't yet settled on a way on a better way that works for both sexes and their children so many of us are unclear about our roles and where we stand.

Agreed, there are all types of character represented within the sexes.

As sexes, men and women do think differently. This is reflected in educational achievements with regard to analytical and cognitive skills. As the pure analyses taught at school in the past gave way to more 'holistic' problem solving being used now, girls' results have been on the increase.

This is not reflected at the same scale in the work environment simply because it's "a man's world" and other factors come into play.

How much of a difference between men and women exists or whether it is relevant are subjects for debate and not a dialectic as there is no one single truth, anywhere, at any time.

Men Vs. Women

Source: unknown


If Laura, Suzanne, Debra and Rose go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Suzanne, Debra and Rose.

If Mike, Charlie, Bob and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla, Peanut-Head and Scrappy.

Eating out

When the bill arrives, Mike, Charlie, Bob and John will each throw in £20, even though it's only for £32.50. None of them will have anything smaller, and none will actually admit they want change back.

When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.


A woman has the last word in any argument.

Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.


Women love cats.

Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.


A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.

A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.


A man has six items in his bathroom: a toothbrush, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel from the Holiday Inn.

The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify most of these items.


A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.

A successful woman is one who can find such a man.


A man will pay £1 for a £2 item he wants.

A woman will pay £2 for a £1 item that she doesn't want.


A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.

A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change and she does.


Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.

Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

Dressing up

A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the rubbish, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.

A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.


Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.

A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

Thought for the day

Any married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing
