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.

My husband left 4 weeks ago. He moved his money in July without telling me and I ended up paying all his direct debits out of my account because he didn't forwarn me. Two paydays since then and nothing. I have cancelled his direct debits but am still struggling. Can just manage to pay the mortgage and essential bills but me and son are virtually living on bread and water!! Have only managed to speak to him twice he refuses to give me any money saying that as he doesn't live here any more he doesn't have to pay a penny. It was me that asked him to leave but had discussed finances and he agreed to pay half the mortgage then - it is joint mortgage My son is working full time and helping out as much as he can but the mortgage is huge. HELP!!!!!!!

Hi lisajane,

Solicitor, mortgage company (interest only or payment holiday to lighten load in interim) and benefits agency as you may be entitled to tax credits. Sorry can't help with 4th suggestion of hitman as may need him myself;-) It is a truly awful time he is putting you through, you must get legal help, big hug to you,

What a horrid husband and father he's been to you both. My wife left me with her previous debts... and the bailiffs came, and numerous court orders appeared through the post. I had no idea she was hiding so much. Trouble is, we were only married for 10mths and her debts are from her previous marriage! How wrong it is when we make those marital commitments to have this happen to us. You hang in there girl, things will get brighter.

Jason if you were only married 10 months & debts in her name only surely in 2 months you can petition for UB and, as it was a short marriage,she takes them away with her. Nothing to do with you? Or did you get stung?

Lisajane, I agree with Jason, he's a horrible man to do this to you both!!! I would see a solicitor soon. Its awful that he';s left you with such a big mortgage, he is trying to punish you maybe into taking him back?
I wish you all the best,
Cindy
