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?

Hello,
I am divorcing my husband and I am living with my sister and my son in her property. I have been married for 7 years, no children together but I have got son from the previous relationship.
4 months ago I’ve met a guy and we are currently dating. We are not living together and I have no intention to move in with him, at this particular time, neither is he. My question is – am I allowed to have a boyfriend during divorce? Will it messes up my case?

Many thanks.

There is no reason you can''t have a boyfriend whilst you are divorcing. It shouldn''t ''mess up'' your case although your xtb may argue that you intend to live with your boyfriend in the future it would be difficult / impossible to prove that.
