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.

Someone has suggested i look into a non-molestation order against my stbxh and i''m not sure what it entails.

I am sick to death of getting abuse of my ex. I''ve had to get the police out before now for him screaming at me and threatening me at my doorstep. He sends me emails about contact that is already arranged and can be verbally abusive in them. He causes trouble at hand overs repeatedly being abusive and has sworn in front of my daughter and he constantly bad mouths me on social networking sites.

I had to change my phone number shortly after he left due to endless texts and phone calls of him and the final straw came when his ex wife began sending me abusive texts too. At this point we communicated via facebook (not friends) but i soon blocked him off this too when he began getting in touch for no reason. Now we email. I''m getting to the point where i dread my phone beeping to signal a new email!! When i ignore them he continues till i respond!

Would these actions provide grounds for a non-molestation order? I dont want to actual apply for an order unless its absolutely necessary but i''m hoping the threat of such a thing would be enough for him to leave me alone!

My friends ex does nothing but belittle her in emails.
My advice to her was to block the email addresses.
Can you get a 3rd party (your parents or a good friend) to take mobile text messages for you regarding contact?
That way if an abusive text with no real meaning apart from to just hurt you can be deleted without you knowing about it?
My friend feels very empowered knowing her ex cannot email her anymore.
