What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.
The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.
A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.
I found this site 18 months into my separation and to begin with it was a huge help.
But i cant help feeling that the more i use it the more i read posts that leave me more than a little unsettled.
I understand emotions are high and we are all at different stages and sides of the divorce/separation process but i began to use this site because i was feeling vulnerable about the breakdown of my marriage and unsure of how things were playing out etc. Sometimes its not enough to talk to friends and family when they dont have the same experiences as you which is obviously why this site is a huge help.
Yet i feel some posts can be hurtful. People are quick to make judgements without knowing a particular persons circumstances and i sometimes wonder if some posts are actually helping people.
Does anyone else share this experience or is it just me being overly sensitive?
