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 going to court over a Financial Settlement?

It depends.

In the short term you might be expected to - but aren't forced to.

In the longer term you might be required to pay:
- child maintenance, if applicable
- spousal maintenance, if you earn a lot more than your spouse (and earn at least 30K)

Usually after a divorce is completed - and you have moved out permanently - you would typically pay just child maintenance.
