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.

Well its not quite over yet but my 2 years separation is finally up. I have the paperwork in hand and have arranged to see a JP to sign it off later in the week. It will be submitted the day after. Everything else is agreed and was settled in full some time ago. I finally feel like I am about to step into the light at the end of the tunnel.

So why post this? To say a HUGE THANKS to all of you who have helped over the past two years. Its been stressful but nowhere near as bad as if I''d been on my own.

Best wishes to all of you and best of luck to those still going through this. You will get there in the end, no matter how you may feel right now.

What a fab post :)

I''m delighted that this is now almost at an end for you, once you have those papers signed and submitted to Court I''m sure it will be a huge weight off your minnd.

Hopefully you will pop back here from time to time to help others going through separation/divorce in Scotland too.

Best wishes for the future
