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.

"I could file for divorce straight away even though we are still living together? Or do we need to be separated (as in living arrangements) for a period of time before i can do this?"

Yes issue asapYou don't want to leave it 6 months after last allegation of H's unreasonable behaviour.

Anor reason for pressing on is if finances were to be agreed you NEED a Decree Nisi so the Court can approve any settlement as the earliest this can be done is on or after the D/Nisi and the settlement takes effect if a lump sum or transfer of property order on the Decree Absolute which ends the marriage.
