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 wish I dont have to ask this but life is not always what you wish for...:unsure:

Okay.. I was a good girl.
Did not shoot the *&^%$@#
Did not take drugs
Did not restart smoking
Did not drink until knock out any night

But..raided the fridge too often, esp at insomniac, lonely and desperate 2 am .


Sooooooo.... is there anyone out there with experience of Reductil. Since I am not obese I wont qualify on the NHS but GP mentionend it and its very pricey.
My general diet is good thats why she suggested a cut down in portion size via chemical helpers.
Please dont provide new diets or over the counter pills, just your own experience with that drug and what I can expect..or not...

I have not had any personal experience of this medication, but having read up on the side effects I would be a little concerned.I would research it thoroughly first if I were you.Also it requires a diet and an exercise regime in addition to the drug.

Yes, I ask because of the side effects.
Diet regime will be done, exercise I do anyway and sufficient for my age and I will be regulary monitored (eg blood pressure and cholesterol).
However diet regime is not an option as a solo option. My diet is generally good, no soft drinks, no crisps, no sweets, no cakes, no ready meals. I love to cook, make even my own bread, choose a salad gladly for chips... I just eat far too much out of frustration. Could take up smoking again as a cheaper option ...*only kidding*
Since I a am not obese I should take it anyway only for 2 month or so to give me a kick start and " educate" my stomach in regards to portion sizes. The only reason I can get it is because raised blood cholesterol and since my GP prefers me rather to have a well proven drug under controll instead me dabbling with over the counter stuff.

No other fridge raiders there? :(
