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.

I''d want to divorce someone who was so controlling as to remove fuse from the washing machine because they had decided I wasn''t capable of using it.
I suspect she was a bit of a nightmare to live with but I do think having to list such things to get a Divorce is humiliating and should become a thing of the past.
Thanks for the article Triste.

A typical case of one party wanting to prevent their spouse from obtaining a divorce even if their spouse does not want to be with them.

I think that the gradual process of growing apart leaves people in a position that a minor annoyance is reason enough to end the marriage on the grounds that that is all the marriage is worth at that point.

Similar to being annoyed by somebody coughing or fidgeting next to you on a short train journey. Annoying enough that you would move to another seat as your connection with the stranger next to you is of no value therefore it is not worth putting up with their annoying behaviour.

Using apparently minor particulars of unreasonable behaviour are a symptom of a marriage that has been on a lengthy downward spiral.

All in my humble opinion of course..
