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.

Are you sure you share is 3k, that seems very high.

Who you pay depends on if your ex has payed the solicitor, if they have then you owe the ex if not you pay the solicitor, any which way i would ask your solicitor deal with it, then you have a full record of the transaction.
