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 attended FDR on monday. My x lied about my income at present forwarding financial evidence from over 12mths ago when i was receivin dla, carers allowance ad tax credits for my son who has now left school and is not at college or in work.He also said he was my youngest main carer, and we have shared care agreed by us both. I no longer receive any of the above so my income has been reduced by over £1,000 per month.My barrister or solicitor did not question this and i was basically told to sell the house and take half the equity. I have to rehouse 3 boys,and am unable to get a mortgage.What can i do.

If what he said was factually incorrect prove it, get the paperwork to show you don`t receive those benefits,if you go to a final hearing you will have a new judge with fresh eyes but make sure you can show your true financial position.

If your barrister and solicitor did not question it then they must have good reason not to question it. Why not ask them why they did not question it?

Remember this is the FDR and is not the final hearing, in real terms it means nothing and people still lie till this stage. It will all come out at the FH if you get that far.
