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.

Finanaces in child hearings

Hello Everyone,

I''ve had a very strange conversation with my ex the other day.

After many months of financial destitution for my whole family the HMRC decided to award all of the tax credits for the children to me.

When I saw her the other day, she told me that she was fine about me keeping them all... but I''m worried that she''ll try to make me look bad if I do in our upcoming final hearing.

She also asked me to give her a chunk of money.

It seems very strange to me; I think if she was thinking of continuing to look for a shared residence order, she would also need one child''s tax credits to help her pay for their care. The reason I''d like to hold on to them personally is because I feel they should live with me and she''s a financial nightmare who wasn''t responsible with finances in connection with them at all, anyway...
