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 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.


I did mention that yesterday I was told about £45 per week???

They are bad but the answer you get is well you knew T&C''s when you joined, which does not make it right & at the time of accepting job it was Hobson''s choice :(

Just look up SSP on the DirectGov site - about £85 a week. Not great admittedly.

They can''t make you take annual leave. Just get a fit note from your doctor and SSP is in line with published rates on the internet.

If they have lost any annual leave as a result of them not allowing you back to work PM me as I would advise that you take steps to recover this entitlement

Well went to see Consultant on Monday & instead of getting Fit to work Certificate I was given a sick not for 4 weeks :(not really what I was hoping for.

Would be able to settle down to full recovery if I was being paid to do so. Quite how a single person is expected to survive on £85 per week is beyond me.

Have looked into possibility of temporary benefits but it would appear that if you have over £16k you are not entitled to anything, so the small about of money that I got from our house sale which subsides my low salary erodes away further.

I confess to being totally bewildered by the benefit system how people on two reasonable salaries seem to be entitled are entitled to tax credits & benefits while someone like myself on an unliveable salary is entitled to zero is beyond my understanding.

Rant over just feeling very sorry for myself at the moment, usually bright & positive but at the moment I don''t think I have ever felt so low & depressed with everything
