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.

redoctober : I used to be a strong believer in socialist principles ( please don't ask me at wiki 'why' or 'why no longer' as I am liable to tell you...lol ) hence the 'red' and October is my birth month.
Before the well known film 'The Hunt for Redoctober' with Sean Connery, there was a French film called "Marie Octobre" set some years after World War II where the heroin asks all the surviving members of her resistance group for dinner in order to find out who had betrayed them to the Germans.
The sense of patience to right a wrong appealed to me and i wanted to come on as Marie Octobre, but stbx would have known it was me.
Now I don't care any more.
My name is Marie.

I decided on Poppie (Poppy was already taken) because they always look so fragile and that is how I was feeling when I chose the name. I also have a picture on my bedroom wall by Monet of Corn Poppies which is lovely.

My name also simply refers to my job. If I'd have chosen a name that reflected how I've been feeling in the past few years, it would have offended many !
My name caused confusion in the chat room, everyone thought I was 'Tetchy', as in a bit angry. My fault though, coz I chose to spell 'Techie' with a y, as it looks better. Maybe I actually have, inadvertantly, revealed how I've been feeling...

Chosen because I hope that one of the wives of one of the SOBS who played a part in my breakup and will put one and one together if they ever go on this site and that KARMA will take its course.
