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.

You have the right to privacy, so you can change the locks. He has the right to access the house, but any access has to be by prior arrangement with you and there has to be a reason, not just because he fancies sitting in your front room coz you have a better telly :dry:Access as in, to facilitate contact with children if it makes it easier for everyone, or access to pick up his belonging

Not sure about if he gives up his flat and decides to ve back though....
