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.


I want to appeal against my pension-sharing order.

I got divorced last year and still haven''t received my pension from my ex''s company. However, I will only receive 12% of his pension and this really isn''t enough for me to live on (think my solicitor forgot my ex had 2 pensions and just worked the sums out using one of them!). How do I go about appealing against it and trying to get a fairer settlement?

Do you have a Consent Order? Was this drawn up by your solicitor?

Well, as I got divorced over a year ago, I suppose I did. Was not very well mentally at the time and just wanted all the nastiness to finish. As such I just did what my solicitor advised.
So I now find I will be having to try to live on £7,500/annum in 13 years time which is very scary!

Well if it''s all written up in a Consent Order then there''s nothing you can do about it now. If not, then we (or your solicitor) can advise further. There''s really little point speculating until this is known.
