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.

Hi,

My wife and I are going through a divorce at present following her adultery.

I have found a new partner too and need somewhere new to live whilst the divorce goes through. I understand that co-habitation could have a negative impact. However, my new partner has a number of properties and I could rent one under a formal tenancy agreement. Could this still impact any financial settlement negatively?

Thanks in anticipation.

I thought long and hard about this one !
FYI, I am a retired solicitor, and all my antennae start alarm bells
ringing.
I'm also a one property BTL landlord.
You see, sir, your problem is ( or could be ) that it may be alleged that the arrangement was collusive. Yes, I know, it may not be, and probably isn't.
But that isn't going to prevent the other side making allegations of this nature, and the stage is set for a long ( and probably expensive )
fight in Court, and I doubt if it's worth the hassle.
That's just my view. I have no financial interest whatever in giving this advice. It's just that, as a near 80 year old wrinkly, I would be very cautious.
