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.

Had to sell mine along with all my other gold (not a great amount) to pay electric bill and buy food.

Hi redwine47,

I''m not sure, I have deliberated over this many a long evening. I have three rings as well as my STBX''s wedding ring which I found in the car, just weeks after we split, I put it with my own in the original box, along with the original receipt that was given at the time we bought them.

I think if I sold them or got rid of them in any way, I might later regret it. I am not sure. Sometimes I think I should just sell them but a niggle starts to annoy me, telling me not to. I am an awful one for gut instinct and for some reason my gut tells me to hang fire, for the moment at least.

Mind you julesgy''s idea of a well earned holiday, does seem to have an instant appeal. Ohh well Scaryclairie that girly holiday to Santorini may not be as far off as we think! Now that seems like a really good plan! LOL.

Take care for now FoS x
