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?

I think that you have to be careful as most of these financial advisors tend to look after their own interests.
Moneysupermarket.co, will show you the range of what is availiable.
Good Luck,

Do you have 10k to lose? If you have posting on open forums is a good way to lose it.

10k is small fry in business investment, find a decent ISA keep it safe, please don''t post on the Internet saying you have money to invest, or some clever thief will take it from you.

It all depends on you view on risk, a cash ISA is very safe but not going to set the world alight, shares ISA has more potential for return, but higher risk. Or you could put the whole lot into premium bonds, you should get some return and will always get your money back. Or there is the other option of No6 in the 15:45 at Kempton...

You really need to decide first about how accessible you want the money to be, what level of risk you are prepared to take and how long you want to invest. I think it''s quite a good idea to keep the equivalent of two or three months wages saved in cash somewhere accessible as a contingency. If you are thinking of a cash ISA it''s advisable to check that it is better than an ordinary savings account.

Shares are volatile just now and I was at a meeting last week with investment managers and they aren''t predicting an end to the volatility any time soon so unless you are prepared to invest for the medium to long term (7-15 years) it''s perhaps better to avoid equities. If you want to invest in shares and are prepared to spend time doing some research one thing you can consider is opening an ISA dealing account and drip feeding say £500 a month into it and building up a portfolio yourself of 8-10 FTSE100 companies in different sectors. That way you save on fees and you are spreading the risks.
