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.

A friend of mine is going through a divorce. She is the respondent. It''s on the grounds of 5 years separation. The Nisi has been applied for. They want to ''do it themselves'' to save money. Her stbx has appointed a solicitor. They have verbally agreed that they want a Clean Break as when they split 5 years ago they divided up the assets. No children involved.

What is the best way of securing a Clean Break? Is it as simple as drafting an agreement and getting it witnessed by a solicitor? Is there a standard form?

Many thanks in advance

The solicitor will draft a Consent Order which provides the actual Clean Break, in others words it''s the order that is the clean break, they tell the solicitor what they have agreed and the solicitor writes it up.

Be careful with costs though, this site provides a solicitor Clean Break service for £139, it''s worth checking to see what the solicitor intends to charge.
