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.

Would the court take into account his girlfriends salary they have been living together for over a year and a half, they are both high flyers within the business field and on extremely good salaries.

He claims he is finding it hard to make ends meet due to the debt, which he changes the amount owed when ever it suits his argument, and wants the house to off set the debts, thus leaving myself and the children homeless.

Court wont know what her salary is and it''s her salary so no.

Courts dont make children homeless so don''t worry about that

Actually yes her salary can be taken into account. He is living in a two-income household and his needs will be reduced as such.

She cannot be forced to disclose her details to court but her refusal to do so would mean the court makes certain assumptions about it.

As far as I know, being a student does not disqualify you from legal aid. I got legal aid while a full time student a couple of years ago (though I admit things may have changed since then).
