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.

dont mind if i have to sell the house when kids are 18, but he has said on numerous occassions, i need to sell way before then so he can get his share,( have now ignored these comments), dont think i can be made to sell house,would not be able to afford anything else x another thing that is worrying me, is that friends of both of ours have said, his illness is getting worse and this is being covered up by family members, if he is hospitalised again drugged and put back into mental ward, what grounds do i have to get finances sorted quickly or Absolute sorted, is there a loop hole , so to speak,or would i have to wait again for him to be able to make decisions x his famlily have acted for him before on his behalf but have made matters worse x

Damn right, ignore these baseless comments. You would certainly not have to sell. The best he could hope for is a lump sum payment, like you''re offering. The second best would be a Mesher, which given his health issues is probably a bad idea.

As for his health issues, it sounds as though it would be a good idea for you to get it all wrapped up as soon as possible, to avoid complications that would be caused by hospitalization etc. So rather than worrying about what if''s, I would get a wriggle on. Better to get it all sorted quickly, so you don''t need to even cross that bridge.
