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.

divorce petition fee is £300 unless on Legal Aid when the fee is exempt -often if a W is potentially Legally aided that is why H's like W to Petition it can be actually cheaper.

Who petitions who is really academic

It actually will help you to get divorced now while he has OW.

If you leave it too long and he is solo there is a greater "need" element -

alternatively if you leave it for some time for the OW to go through divorce she will get her financial settlement and in turn if H and OW set up home it takes away entirely any pressure on you to sell the FMH etc
