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.

Help! I have no water at all upstairs but all OK downstairs. A few days ago I came down to puddles over the kitchen floor - turned out it was the water softener and son disconnected it. I suspect present situation has something to do with that so don''t want to get a plumber out if it''s something I can do myself. Son off to see girlfriend and won''t be back till tonight . . .

I really regret letting STBX do everything now - wish I''d shadowed him a bit more! But at least his new woman has to put up with the filthy temper and the drinking . . .

Have you checked all the stop-cocks? your son might have turned one off when isolating the kitchen problem and forgot to turn it back on.

Look out for isolation valves which tend to be fitted close to taps and machines such as washing machines, dishwashers etc.

On an isolation valve there is a screw on top. The line of the screw should be running in the same direction as the pipe to indicate the flow of water. If it is turned 90 degrees it will stop the flow of water.

Hi Iutlh,

So pleased you have got it sorted out, you will store that one in your memory bank toolbox for future reference.

Its not easy when your first on your own but becomes liberating as you discover all your hidden talents.

I have been on my own for quite a while now and have adopted the motto, "If a man can do it, I must be able to do it better"! :laugh:

Have a good weekend,

NWTT x

Well done!

I saw your post when there were no replies but had nothing useful suggest and didn''t want to get your hopes up by replying!

Glad you sorted it - and I know just how you feel. Just about everything in my house has fallen to bits in the last year and I have posted on here to get some advice. I have learnt a lot (and also learnt to live with some things as they are e.g. cannot justify replacing the dishwasher when repossession is around the corner, even if I do have a house full of lodgers and one way or another seem to be doing all the washing up!!)

I have also learnt how generous and kind some people can be, even if they are perfect strangers. Sad that they are doing more for me and the children than their father, but heartening in a way.

And we will become stronger and more capable - yay!!
