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.

What good is Resolution!?

Well, the ex''s solicitor has finally stooped to accidentally getting her facts wrong and using that as the basis for arguing that my ex and her new live-in pal shouldn''t bother to pay the mortgage when there''s some other mug to do it.

Aside from the "factual inaccuracy", there are two clear breaches of Resolution''s code of conduct in her last letter alone.

This has been going on for months, and obviously it has entrenched my wife''s position ("I''ll take the lot, ta") and encouraged her to use the children as a weapon against a pretty normal loving dad.

Resolution''s response to all this: sorry, can''t step in even if you can prove they''re lying. Got to wait until the damage has been done.

Hi Jilted,

Unfortunately you''ve found the flaw in mediation/resolution - It can''t work where one of the parties is lying or will not negotiate/compromise :(

I''ve only hear it being effective where 2 people are prepared to make it work.
