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.

Me and my wife are living under the same roof but declared separated and receiving child benefit for 1 child each.
My wife is also claiming UC on top of her earnings. She also works on the side and get paid on her bank account, but this is not declared to HMRC or UC as extra incoming earning. on top of that a loan was made prior to the divorce petition of 10K and claiming UC at the same time and put on her savings account which she is still paying back at this present moment.
It seems clear to me that there is fraud unless I am wrong.
Should I report it and if not, what is the risk for me?
What is the responsability of her solicitor if she find out her client may potentially committing fraud?
My situation is very complicated and my wife is sulking every single day. she blames me for not talking about the situation but when I try she doesn't want to. I don't think she realises that she will have to disclose all that in the financial disclosure when we get to that stage.
