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!!!!!! Unfortunately, my wife has decided she has had enough. I have moved out but I am still paying ALL the bills for the marital home. I can't afford it and keep me going. Is she obliged to pay some or all of the bills? This is bleeding me more than dry. HELP

She is responsible for utilities if she is living there. Council tax - She can apply for a reduction if she is living alone. Gas, electric, water.
If you are not living there you only need to pay towards any joint bills eg: joint mortgage. Go to citizens' advice for a check up of who you need to talk to about finances.
