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.

Hi everybody. Ive just received the date for my Nisi. It will be 10th May by my reckoning the Absolute will be the 22nd June.

If that''s correct that should have been our wedding anniversary. We should have been celebrating instead our marriage will be over because he couldn''t keep his hands to himself.

I find that quite sad its definitely not what i wanted. but hey ho that''s life.

The solicitor letter states im to let her know how i want to proceed with the financial aspect.

The only thing that has to be sorted is he house, he agreed that he would sign house over to me aslong as i didnt want half off his 12000 grand pension and he got a Clean Break.

As the mortgage company wont take him off the mortgage my solicitor has requested that the deeds be changed over to my sole name. I am still awaiting confirmation from the mortgage company that they will agree to this. I have been paying the mortgage since April 2010 anyway as he refused to pay half.

Is it advisable that the absolute goes ahead without confirmation from the mortgage company.

thank you for any help

So you have an agreement but do you have a court stamped Consent Order, if not its usually best to wait until you do, verbal agreements count for nothing, you must have a consent order.

Your solicitor is best placed to advise, they will know what happened with the money part of the Petition what was ticked ect.

As far as im aware there is no Consent Order. Although it was his solicitor that requested the house being signed over.

i know on the Petition we are both paying our own costs. So it really is just the house to sort out. He hasnt shown any interest in the house since the day he left to be with the OW. He lives with her in her house but not officially as all letters ger sent to his parents house.

The problem is you can be divorced and both think you have an agreement but without a Consent Order to dismiss future claims against each other for assets income and inheritance it can all go horrifically wrong.

If you do nothing else make sure you have a court stamped Consent Order, then you have peace of mind for the future.

See what the solicitor estimates as cost, then order the wiki Consent Order service at £139, its a solicitor service but will be a dam site cheaper than a high street solicitor.
