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.

Hey there
I married my partner January 2011 in las Vegas and we have now seperated and I want a divorce , things we''re not going too well and then I discovered she had gotten a hotel with her ex to ''deal with what we were going through'' !
Now we were married in Vegas and didn''t register the weeding over here but I have no idea who I need to speak to about getting a divorce. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated as it''s really stressing me out and I wan''t to put it all behind me.
Thanks in advance.

I got married in Florida over 20 years ago and I didn''t have to register my marriage anywhere and still managed to get a divorce.

You need a copy of your marriage certificate in order to apply.

If you live here yes, I did not have to go back to Florida to it.

Have you got your marriage cert? If not you are going to have to apply for a copy of it in Vegas.

Sounds silly but you have to prove you were married AND that your marriage has broken down to apply.

It was a short marriage are there any children?

What grounds are you going to state as grounds for a divorce?

just had a geography lesson

Vegas is in Nevada so you would apply there to get a copy of your marriage certificate and it can be done online

This is the link to check that you are permitted to seek a divorce in the UK

www.wikivorce.com/divorce/Guides-Divorce...-Initial-Checks.html

A lot of people will not admit to adultery, and may agree to a divorce if you allow them to divorce you (and hit you with the costs)

It also leads you into what grounds you can apply for a divorce.

You can do this online if its not contested there are plenty links on here for none contested divorce think thye charge about £179 plus court fees.
