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

Just wondering if from a practical & legal perspective if anyone has any advice or suggestions

Long story short decided to throw myself & my bike onto the road at the sight of an oncoming car not very clever I know

Anyway taken a few days holiday off as company does not pay sick pay. I popped into work today after visit to maxfax dept today to say I would be back to work asap, well long & the short of the story is that they are looking into legal implications due to nature of injury & currently are not going to allow me back & I will need to use my annual holiday entitlement up (which is the shortest entitlement of any company I have ever worked with)

Any advice appreciated

Regards

JE

The only thing I can think of to suggest is the Citizens Advice Bureau. I am guessing you don''t belong to a union of any kind as they would help with something like this.

Try the Directgov website for employment law and links. If you spend some time searching there are some free employment law forums on the web. If you are suspended from work at your employers insistence then this is not holiday. They would need to be following proper procedures.

If you have a household insurance policy they may cover you for legal advice.

Thank you both for you replies

I will have to wait until Monday to try CAB as the have very limited opening times.

I will try the Govt site Maccy, the company has taken legal advice apparently & if I get a letter from the Doctor to say I can work they will let me. They have a strictly no payment for time off rule for sickeness or operations.

They really are all heart when it comes to employees & I would hate to think paying me a few pounds would come between the directors buying each other Bentleys lol

Cwtchs to you Jayne,
By doing something so worthwhile you are now being penalised!!!!!

Okay when you thought auditioning to be the next female Eddie Kidd was part of the gig,you should not and got yourself hurt,how really inconsiderate you are regarding your employers, NOT.

They should be proud of having you work for them,
but find everything out you can?on your entitlements and while your off work,use the time wisely and start getting some cv''s circulated.

Luv and cwtchs
Leas xxxx...............................

I would wholly endorse what afonleas says about using the time wisely. Not a great employer. Have they made you aware that you can claim SSP? Depending on how long you were off you may be eligible.
