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.

Any advice please?

Myself and my soon to be X, are still living under the same roof.

A Consent Order has been issued, to which she doesnt agree.

Im offering her X amount and she wants double X.

I will be sticking to my guns on this, but my worry is her wrecking some of my property whilst living at home, and prior to her leaving.

What can be done if she does ruin furniture etc??

I can see the TV getting walloped, a knife throught the sofa, a hammer at the walls etc.

Not a lot I''m afraid. Chattels (house contents) are only worth their second hand value, and therefore unless there are some expensive artworks, it''s not worth taking court action over. Anything irreplaceable or of sentimental value, you should keep safe (at work or with friends/family).

As for not agreeing to the consent order, if you can''t agree in a settlement, you should apply to court for Ancillary Relief.
