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.

Advice please.. acrimonious divorce ahead

Hi Charles,

What does a Law Costs Draftsman do? Make sure the bill is eye-watering! ;)

Cheers, John

Hi John
Your friend if he has 2 kids will be waving goodbye to 75% of everything he has ever earned.
IF he gets any more than 25% that will be a very pleasant surprise.
The harder he fights for the unobtainable 50% the greater his solicitor costs will get.
Hope this helps your friend.
All the best
Haway xx

It is a good idea to understand the process and have a realistic position on what a settlement will look like. Financial settlement will be based on the parties' respective needs and the means they have between them to meet them. Why not suggest your friend looks at the site and maybe joins himself so he can get support.
