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.

x arrived back from his 10 days fishing holiday, already throwing his weight around.
demanding receipts as proof for personal items I bought WHICH i HAD AROUND THE HOUSE over the past 30 years......saying unless I could produce a receipt they weren't mine.
you'd expect the items concerned to be of some great monetary value WROOOOOOOOoooooooooNG !!!!

TWO CHEAP VASES ,one as cracked as he is.

seems everything I bought I need a receipt for as proof ,everything he bought doesn't.
He also wants the bed I sleep on but hey! I can keep the mattress.
At least that's an improvement on his previous offer of sawing it down the middle and which half would I like to keep.?
Anyone else been through this stupidity yet??
the words he used was he'd contest it? posh words for 2 measly vases.
All because I packed my personal stuff whilst he was away fishing.perhaps he'd like to x ray the boxes in case I've hidden all sorts inside.
he did have photos of everything in the house but it seems they weren't good enough as I only gave him black and white copies and not in colour.
Well I wasn't wasting my colour ink cartridge on him was I?
i've already wasted 35 years that was more than enough.
Glad to say he doesn't frighten me anymore and all thanks to Wikki.
