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.

Hi, I''m new to this but hoping that there is someone out there that can give me some advice.
I''m in the very early stages of divorcing my husband after he has been cheating on ey for 3 yrs. Have got our first mediation session together in a couple of weeks and have just been sent the Financial workbook to complete. My question is this: do I need to declare any future inheritance that I may receive. My parents are in their 80''s but are both in good health. I will eventually get an inheritance when they both die, to share with my brother and sister. Do I need to declare this. My husband is aware that I will receive an inheritance at some point, but if I get divorced and they are still very much alive, will he have any claim to any inheritance after I am divorced.

No you don''t. You''ve not received the inheritance and indeed you may never get it - the money could all be spent on care homes or they could change their wills and leave it all to the cats'' home. Once you have the Ancillary Relief order through your ex will have no claim on it at all.

Best wishes,
Sadie

Sadie is right, and if your ex tries to raise the issue, you should mention these points and shut it down immediately.
