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.

Today would be our 20th wedding anniversay but we are separated and due to divorce.

I am sad that after all we have been through there is bitterness and anger, I treasured my marriage I loved my husband but I could not live with him any longer. I tried hard to keep it going but no-one could sustain the amount of stress of living with him. I was going to marry once and grow old with him, but he wasn''t the person I thought and also he suffers from a mental illness, he wasn''t the man I married.

Instead of celebration I am alone and weary, but I still have hope that one day I will find a quiet happiness and some contentment in my life and I wish that all of you find the same.

Good luck xxx blue xxx

Anniversarys are so difficult to cope with as are Birthdays and other meaningful dates.It probably is best to remember the good times and grieve for them but then recognise those times have gone and you have a new life waiting for you.Definitely not easy to do but time passing does make it easier.

It''s hard. My 20th was November last year and I spent it alone. We were living together still but didn''t do anything. I am not looking forward to next year.
