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.


Marriage is a contract of trust

It does not matter what your religious, spiritual or non spiratuaral aspriations are, marriage is a contract of trust.

You make vow either religious, spiritual or civil and then most critically you sign a civil register which seals your marriage in law.

It is not a contract in the same way full of small print in the way that partners in other parts of law have to abide by and undergo.

In my view it just does to underline my belief that if their is a breech of trust either by you or the other party that you should be able to exercise your rights to break the contract no matter what the reason and no matter what the feelings of the other party.

What does everyone else thinkk?

Thanks to the no blame legal system.

A marriage or relationship us built of many things. It is like a house in many ways. Trust is the foundations it is built on. Love is the bricks and wood that forms the walls and roof. Sexual attraction and sex are the mortar that holds it together.

When one of the elements are gone, the stucture collapses.

Trust is very important. If it is misplaced it is the worst kind of betrayal.

We all go in with stupid intention (well maybe not all) but animal instinct is one of the worst drivers - it is always going to be a killer for someone in divorce (or marriage).

Oh well, live and learn - wish I had learnt a lot earlier in fact still "only" 50.

In the words of Haway fxxk it my ex should learn to move on as by mutual consent we are divorced and he is now re-married.

fxxk leave me alone, I believe in fault and non fault divorce - why should a contract of trust be any less than any other contract in law?
