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, my ex has given me a sheet of paper with a so called offer. I have worked part time round my family so am unable to get a morgage. Last year he tried to buy my youngest son, and in the process had child benefit transferred to him. He is on over £50,000 a year,me less than £6,000 with child tax creedits. I was not informed by child benefit (enquiry in process).My 3 boys all live with me 19,16 and 10.Due to losing cb i also lost child tax credits. His offer is if i move out the mh he will give me cb back, half equity, but leave his pension alone £292,000.Is this fair

No, not in the slightest. Do not agree to this offer, seek proper advice from those who are knowledgeable about divorce finances.

Tell him to make a sensible offer or you''ll apply to the court for Ancillary Relief.
