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.

Signing it over to your brothers would just be treated by the court as deprivation of an asset. They would just deal with it as if you still owned it. They might even consider that you need even less of the remaining assets as you can afford to give £60k away.

Given that you earn far more And therefore have greater mortgage capacity it may be worth considering offering more than 50% of the equity from the FMH. Have you any idea what your ex wants?

Yours isn’t a long marriage but it’s not short either.

No idea yet , but for sure she will want half of the FMH, of which she is more than entitled, but she will go for other house also, that was initially my retirement the reason for having a second house , how can they have a claim on something they have never had any financial input to , seems so unfair.
