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.

It is in fact not the people/women that make the rules, it is the government. The fact is that if you do not support your ex wife, who will? The government, council and taxpayer, that''s who. So if some politician puts forward a bill that fathers should have a better deal and not have to support their ex wives so much, the first thing that the other politicians will ask him is, who will pay to house and feed all these ex wives? That bill will never get any votes because it is a vote for more reliance on benefits and therefore raised taxes. Any MP who suggests this will be voted out pretty sharpish. Trying to get your MP to bring this bill into parliament will be an uphill struggle because it''s against their own interests.

Hmm... beginning to think that I eould be better off stacking shelves in Tesco.

Just for the record though, to avoid any doubt, I have not been suggesting not supporting my ex. I am left feeling that I have been used though.

Thought I should post a brief update.

Communications slightly improved, and we are receiving counselling. Some sessions better than others, but have to hope for the best.

Wife has now agreed to sign the Deed of Trust that was promised when we bought the house at the end of last year; I will post a separate question with respect to this Deed of Trust.

Many thanks for all of the help and advice so far.

You forgot the one main thing in her busy day schedule.
In between gym coffeee lunch with the vat of wine and fake tan session she managed to squeeze the new fella in too,no wonder she''s tired ;)
There will definately be one.
Congratulations you just found out how to turn £200k into £75k in a year.It''s called getting married having a kid and locking up all your liquidity in a house.
And she''ll be trying to hit you for 15% in child maintenance of your £8000 a month earnings post tax.
Don''t be a three time loser stay a bachelor after this FFS man.
All the best
Pete x

P.S.
Just saw your last post.You''ve got more chance of seeing God than her putting pen to paper on that deed of trust.Why would she sign that when she can take you for 50/50.by law? Although i''ll nsrtick by my norm once she talks to her mates and a solicitor with kids she''ll go for 75/25 in her favour.
