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.

Thanks Dukey
My stbx earns 1500 to 2000 net per month. He lives with friends and I do not know if he is paying rent.
Until recently he paid me 600 per month and has dropped this to 250 with o reason.
I have no income except 608 per month pension, is it likely he should pay more?

If your talking about spousal maintenance the answer is no, though without knowing much more its a probable no, he does not earn enough.

Or are you talking child maintenance?.

Not child maintenance no, my daughter is at uni. He has paid 600 a month for three years and just dropped it. Would I be expected to survive on 850 a month for mortgage, bills etc. whilst he lives rent free with friends and no other outgoings? Seems a bit unfair.
