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.

I am working part time and I am earning £600 a month plus £900 in Child and Working tax credit, my solicitor said that the mediators will decide if I am eligible for legal help with the mediation sessions.
I was just wondering whether anyone would know this on this the current income of £1500.
