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.

Sounds like he want's to do it on the cheap I asume you are likely to get legal aid? in which case if you petition on any old grounds of UB he isn'y going to contest it. He get's what he wants a divorce and he keeps his leagl bill to a minimum.

Hi Jacko

H is already moaning about the costs of it all, because of the lack of agreement of over other issues. So this procedure will not be cheap for him !

I have my own solicitor and I do not qualify for legal aid.

Believe me, he is not getting what he wants as I have all the control at the moment and he hates that!

Hi pipistrelle,

Sorry I misunderstood the general gist!

When it comes to UB it's amasing what some peoples imagination comes up with! so don't be surprised if he does go down that route what C**p he might try and dream up.

Hi Jacko

It might be quite amusing to see what he comes up with depending how desperate he is to get rid of me! :laugh:

That really is a low blow to drag the children in to it all and to make you suffer!

I certainly won't be making light of it if my H does a similar thing. I never thought about that aspect. Sorry I didn't mean to cause you distress there. Considering my H's out of character behaviour over the last year I wouldn't put anything passed him. However, I am a much stronger person than he realises!

Best of luck Jacko.

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
