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.

Hi all

My ex-wife and I signed a Clean Break agreement back in September 09. At that stage I was not seeing anyone nor had any intention of seeing anyone.

I have a clause in the above agreement (see below) and I have been seeing someone and we have the intention to get engaged and married in the foreseeable future. Does this clause prohibit me in anyway?

"AND UPON it being recorded that the husband and the wife have both represented that each currently have no intention to either cohabit or re-marry in the foreseeable future."
