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.


Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.


Urgent Disputing divorce cost. Nisi in 2 weeks

Hi all,

I've been reading the forum and I think I know the answer but would appreciate some clarity.

I have a Decree Nisi in 2 weeks and I've been asked to pay the costs if not agreed.

He is divorcing me on unreasonable behaviour and domestic abuse in an attempt to get ILR. Even though it was the other way round.

An arranged marriage abroad. Entered on a spousal visa a year later and we lived together for a month before he got arrested. I didn't end up pressing charges.

His visa has been curtailed and a year later asking me to pay his costs for divorce and spousal maintance as his part time minimum wage isn't enough.

I was wondering if it was worth me disputing the divorce costs as I'm on SMP with a newborn. Unfortunately me and my new partner are no longer together and when I receive the divorce petition I had just given birth and didn't want the stress or large costs associated with a cross petition.

Would appreciate any comments.
