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.

Wow Sim, he sounds like a right s*d, I don''t blame you for fighting him every inch of the way. Good Luck, I hope you get things sorted quickly.

I know what benefits I''m entitled to, am just having to fight damn hard for them I''m not alone, if you look on any ME/CFS/FM forum you''ll find people in the same boat. I don'' think my ex would be as awful as yours, but then again, I wouldn''t put anything past him right now, he''s a stranger. I know he really doesn''t want me under ''his'' roof, so I suspect he''ll think of a few things to try & push me out. I''ll remember not to leave my toothbrush in the bathroom lol

I''ve not noticed any difference with family & friends. I''m not close with my family so they''ve been as normal & my friends don''t know the full extent of everything. I''ve not told many people. Everyone lives miles away anyway, so there''s not much they can do & I don''t want them to feel crappy cos they can''t help out. He was pretty much my closest person. I miss that side of him, the phone calls & making plans. I don''t miss much else.
