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.


Finally over

I should have left 12 years ago but did not pluck up the courage until 2plus years ago but better late than never.

I should have made the decision to Divorce my STBX about 5 years ago but kept hoping things would change.I realised there was no hope when he said he didn''t want a Divorce but couldn''t be bothered trying to work on putting things right!Say''s it all really.I had 2 choices put up with things as they were and keep being miserable or get out and hope things would be better on my own.So far I feel much better than I did having made the decision to go for a Divorce but I so wish I hadn''t needed to.

Wen I finally made the decision it felt Sooo good for me. Novelty wears off., reality sets in, really sh* *y... But one of the best decisions I have ever made, no regrets. I m hoping it will get easier in time.

Hey birdlegs, well done you :kiss:

Redwine: trust me, it gets easier in time :)

I''ve been married twice - BOTH husbands used to tell me ''the marriage is over'' every time there was a row. I would fall apart. In both cases, my moment of enlightenment was exactly the same. The last time each of them said that to me... I didn''t fall apart. That''s when I knew I was done.

I''ve only said that twice in my life (once to each) and what is very interesting to me is that, ultimately, neither husband wanted to divorce...
