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.

Hi All
When someone dies leaving a Will, are the beneficiaries informed by letter that they are to inherit or do you have to make representations to the Executors to ask if you are a named beneficiary?
As if divorce isnt enough - HELP???

Since it is the duty of an executor to give effect to the terms of a will, it's hard to see how they could discharge the duty without informing the beneficiary.

There is nothing wrong is asking an executor what the terms of a will are.

You can even get a copy of the probate without asking anyone.
