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.

He didn''t know what was written? Don''t think so! My ex said the same, as though the client didn''t instruct the lawyer and all correspondence hadn''t been sent for approval anyway.

Yes it hurts when you read the lies written down. I remember shaking like a leaf as I read them.

Get a little support group around you for times like this. Spend time with your friends, in fact I hope you''re there as I write! Reconnect with old friends too and just take time to realise that you''re better off without someone who can dismiss all those years in a pack of lies and half truths.

You know the truth. Believe in yourself and remember we''re here for you.

Hug! xx

Two weeks after my ex left he begged me to divorce him, when I said I didnt want a divorce he said ''I will have to find reasons to divorce you then''. Eight very long and cruel reasons.

As with JJ, I agreed to the divorce but not for the reasons stated, adding a response to each reason.

Like you my ex told me that it wasnt him who wrote the Petition but his solicitor. They just cannot accept the blame, its everyone elses fault but theirs.

Please believe me when I say, one day it will all be just a memory, you may even laugh at how ridiculous the reasons were. My ex came across as a bit of a wimp in his Petition, he certainly didnt do himself any favours.

He will never take away your memories, they are your memories. If he chooses to rewrite history then let him. It hurts but one day that hurt will fade, his lies will always be lies and he has to live with the repercussions of that.
