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.

advice please

when you Petition you must separate at that time, this doesn''t mean that one of you must move out but you shouldn''t live together as husband and wife - don''t share domestic tasks, don''t sleep together and don''t eat together etc.

Welcome to Wikivorce Simie :)

IN case you are looking for information regarding what the possible financial split would be, it would help if you can answer the following questions:

Your respective ages;

The number of children you have and their ages;

How many nights the children spend with each parent;

The length of your marriage and any period of pre marriage cohabitation;

Your respective incomes;

Your respective outgoings;

Your assets - both soley held and joint;

Your liabilities.
