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.

Sometimes the Absolute is granted before a financial settlement is reached but that won''t stop your financial claims. If no longer being married would leave you financially disadvantaged your solicitor can let the court know so that the absolute is postponed until the finances are resolved.

I agree with fiona.
even is the divorce goes through it doesnt stop the need for a financial settlement.
easy to say but try not to worry about this point, my understanding is that it doesnt advantage or disadvantage either party.
