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 going to file for divorce as my husband committed adultery and now has a child with the woman. We have been together for 8 and a half years, living together for 7 in his house, married for 3 years.I have no idea what i am doing, i earn half of what he earns so didn''t pay as much into the house as he did whilst i was living there. We started to try and sort things out ourselves but he is "kicking his heels" with the payment and terms we agreed on. I''m basically looking for a little advice on what i would be entitled to and how to go about things if anyone can help? Thanks

Do you have children together?

As you were married doest matter who paid more etc, you will be considered equal.

The assest split will be done on ''need''

You would have to post more details of your ages, income, assets including any pensions and liabilities before anyone could attempt to suggest what might happen.
