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.

hi , unexpected revised offer arrived in post.

Would like to accept it, this letter mentioned Clean Break intended, fine by me, so if we agree and i accept it, does this offer mean the solicitors can draw up the financial agrements, and then that is it ?

I say this as my father is ill, and could pass away within a few weeks and I might inherit etc and ofcourse this would change my estate etc.

The offer did not mention anything about my father (she knows he is ill). I am a bit paranoid, but hoping this offer which was at the Low end is just that, a genuine offer.

If you are happy to accept it, accept it :)

I am not absolutely sure as I have unfortunately not got to that stage yet, but I would imagine that the Consent Agreement will be drawn up, signed by you both and then submitted to the court to seal.

Not sure of timescales with regards to sealing the order but once agreed, I would not imagine it would take too long.

I know that you will get a difinitive answer from more knowledgeable Wiki''s but as we were both viewing your post at the same time, I did not want to leave it and not reply (as I always think if the author of the post is waiting for an answer and you can see someone is reading it, it looks very rude to just click out of the post) :)I am probably too polite but there you are

Best wishes and so glad that you have an offer you are happy to take given the circumstances of your Dad''s health

Kind regards
