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 discovered whilst living with my spouse, that over a matter of months money was being pilfered from my works briefcase and pockets, whilst I was asleep. I felt that I could no longer trust my spouse, so confronted her with it and she admitted doing the deed, which made me feel as though I was not providing properly for her and her children from a previous marriage. Is this grounds for unreasonable behaviour.

Hello!

I''m not 100% sure of the legal procedures based around Unreasonable Behaviour but i can tell you what my solicitor told me the other week! To Petition on grounds of unreasonable behaviour you need to present 5 examples of behaviour. These can be anything that you find unreasonable to you. I saw someone on here mention that you could cite the fact that your spouse left their socks on the floor everyday for a period of time! Two examples for you could be 1. Deception and 2. Theft. If you''ve reached the point of divorce, i''m sure you can find 5 more!!

My solicitor told me the court doesnt care how the marriage broke down, just that it did! Your spouse can choose to reject the reasons but still agree to the divorce.
