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.

where does it go from here

It infuriates me to read the sad stories on here relating to finances. Isn''t it bad enough that the b.....ds have left us high and dry and set up home with their various s..gs/fl...zies without them being able to see us wallowing in the gutter. Maybe we should start lobbying parliament for a change in the law so that if you are the victim(and yes I accept that we all have to take our share of resposibility, but we didn''t ask to be abandoned), your financial security is assured as much as it can be. Why when you are not the instigator of the split should you be left foghting for funds, terified of your financial future, dependant on the whim of a judge. There should be a law that rules in favour of the abandoned person at the xpense of the person who has left. They after all made the decision to destroy life as we knew it. And they shouldn''t be allowed to not pay. Their assetts should be frozen and if found to be lying, the penalties should be severe.
Stingray I wish you the very best. xxxx

Sadly there is no such thing as fair based on a general rule. Many leave bcos they feel there is no other choice left to them, they may be the instigator of the split for very valid reasons. What constitutes reasons for being classed a ''victim''? And who would have to prove ''victim'' - at whose costs? It goes on and on and on and on .........
