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?

Hi Jelly

I think that if you've not done something for 22 years, then thinking about doing it can be a very scary experience. Particularly if there are some (for want of a better word) psychological reasons behind it, maybe confidence, self esteem, maybe due to things that you've been told or made to feel during those 22 years.

I would seriously encourage you to try to break this cycle tho Jelly - as with most things, the first few steps will be the hardest and scariest, but the rewards will be worth it. I know that we're generally better at giving advice than taking it, but what would you tell someone to do if they came to you with this problem?

It's very easy to stay within our own comfort zones, but there's a big wide world out there. And as far as I'm concerned you are one of the main characters on wiki - you chat and interact with people here as well as anyone. There's no reason that you can't be like that away from here too. You deserve to be with other people and from what I've heard/seen they would be the ones benefting from your company

Hopefully there's a happy medium between a pub with one person in it and the Rocky Horror Review bar! :)

Take a leaf out of Carrie's book and try to arrange a night out on a Monday when it'll be quiet (and hopefully free of stocking clad thunder-thighs). And may many more follow!

Mmm I’m glad of my quiet time now. Noise is not on my choice of things to do and go for hehe. I went to a wedding over the weekend and had partaken in one or two tasteful of beverages there were to be had.

I got talking to a fella at the bar in the hotel bar who had come in with his dog his dog and shouts to the barman, "I'll have a Scotch and water and my dog would like a whiskey sour."

The bartender says, "Sorry mate, we don't allow animals in here."

The dog replies, "Hey, I'm tired of being discriminated against. Just give me a drink."
The bartender says, "Oh, no, not another ventriloquist with the old talking dog trick. Both of you get out of here!"

"No, no, no, this isn't a trick, I promise you," says the man, "I tell you what, I'll go for a walk around the block and you talk to Rover here."

The man leaves and the bartender sees him turn the corner.

"Now, can I have my drink." says the dog.

The bartender is amazed. "Sure you can and it's on the house! Listen, can you do me a favour? My wife works next door at the cafe. It'll make her day if you go in and order a cup of coffee. Here's ten bucks and you can keep the change afterwards."

"Okay." says the dog and he takes the ten dollars and leaves.

Ten minutes go by and the dog doesn't come back. The owner returns and asks where is the dog. So both of them go off to see what happened to the dog.

As they approach the cafe, they see Rover going at it hot and heavy with a French poodle in the alley between the bar and cafe.

The owner shouts, "Rover! What are you doing! You've never done this before!"
The dog shrugged. "Hell, I've never had any money before."
