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.

I know its silly but.....today was the first time I have ever made a Sunday lunch all on my own. Bizarre for a soon to be 45 year old!! Husband is the cook and dominates the kitchen. Its not that I can''t cook, its just that I can''t cook with him interfering....
So its Easter Sunday and I wanted us to have a family Easter Sunday lunch, and thats exactly what we did.
Is there anything I can''t do??:)Well for the next half hour anway ....:unsure:

Those Sunday lunches can sometimes be a bit tricky!

I had a few anxious moments about my loin of pork today as it didn''t look as though it was cooking properly.

Thankfully it was all right in the end and soon demolished.

I''m not divorced but I do have a husband who tends to interfere in the kitchen (bless him), but I managed to keep him at bay today.

I''ve cooked Sunday Roasts for as long as I can remember but I had a nightmare last night which was all about cooking Easter lunch for him and the inlaws and me getting frustrated and in a right panic and then spoiling the meal as a result. It all revolved around expectations not being realised - asking him to set the table which he moved from the dining room into the sitting room and I was worried that guests would roast having their backs to the open fire. While trying to finish the cooking I was also shifting furniture with him not helping. It was all fairly typical of siginficant meals - I would ask for assistance and he''d sit in the garden smoking his cigars. Oh how so much more relaxing it is knowing that I have to do it all alone and that I am perfectly capable.

Today''s roast was great, with one of my sons and his family, plus a close friend. I felt more relaxed and less resentful than I have done for years and now can''t wait to be doing it in my very own home.
