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.

Good Morning .

First time on here and although i have made a search cannot seem to find the answer.

Been separated for over 3 years and have a 30 minute slot with solicitor next Monday. I have put together as many papers as I can about funds / property, intend to get marital house valued this week.

Are there any other points that I need to consider ? Because I guess the more paperwork I can take the easier it is ?

Any comments would be appreciated.

You will need to take the original marriage certificate and a form of photo ID ( eg your passport)
The solicitor will want to know both your and your husbands full name, DOB and address, also names and DOB,s of any children. It can save time if you take this with you, written clearly on a sheet of A4.
Other useful documents include, 3 months bank statements and recent P60.

Best wishes,
