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.

Is it ok to ask for Decree Absolute to be delayed until finances are sorted?

Absolutely (no pun intended!), its preferable to have the finances agreed prior to applying for the Absolute.

thank you Rubytuesday, that''s what I thought. My husband has everything he needs including new house. I had to move away to find work and live in rented room. marital home empty now. Husband has no interest in our property and I fear will never settle finances as he is sitting pretty. I am worried my solicitor has agreed to this though. I spoke to a Wikkidivorce solicitor who advised delaying Decree Absolute, but my solicitor''s reply was that I should not read wikkidivorce!
Regards Brontejo
