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.

Sincere thanks to everyone who responded to my post, which was very helpful and supportive to me. I am putting all my emotional devestation at not only my marriage ending but also following on from the death of both my parents who I cared for and loved very dearly, to one side. I am now concentrating on getting all the evidence of my financial support and work over 20 years together into a financial spreadsheet to look at what is a fair settlement with my solicitor. I also believe strongly in Karma and I loved him but now realise I let this get in the way of letting him exploit me emotionally and financially. I have always been an optimist- but have been through some dark days recently- but also know I am very lucky that I have got lots of very good friends who are there for me…..so thanks again and back to work on the finances!
