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.

Six weeks and a day after the Nisi is granted you (the petitioner) can apply for the Absolute decree. However, there may be reasons not to apply for the absolute until the finances have been settled. For example, matrimonial home rights and a spouse''s rights to pension death benefits end when you are no longer married.
