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.

There is still an option for financial claims in an annulment so may be wise to close it off once and for all? There is a difference if it is void or voidable as a void marriage only allows claims relating to children which doesn't appear to be the case. If yours is voidable then a financial claim could happen

"When this marriage is annulled it will, in law, be seen as if it never happened. If the marriage is voidable through annulment, then financial claims will still be allowed through a nullity petition. If it is deemed to be void (to never have existed), then only financial claims for the benefit of the children will be allowed. This can have a considerable impact on your assets, especially if you are a high net worth individual."

The annulment was voidable. We was only married about 3 months and no kids.
The absolute can be done in a few weeks, but am I better holding off till Clean Break Is done. None of us is looking to claim against each other and I'm keen to get absolute done

I had a house in my sole name before marriage. We was married for 3 months before split and she left. We had no finances together, could she claim anything if she wanted like my house? We always had separate finances. But she never owned any property.
I don't think she's after anything now but wanted to check.
