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.

There isn''t enough information. Divorce settlements depend on the overall details - the value of any assets (including pensions) held in joint or sole names, respective incomes, duration of the relationship (marriage+cohabitation beforehand), ages, the number of any children their ages and the number of overnights they stay with each parent.

Just a point but it''s an offence to open another persons mail any evidence you have gained as a result may be inadmissible in court.

I think if you want some help you need to post the details as Fiona suggested. What do you mean by both gt lump sums his bigger than mine.? Lump sums from what? You also don''t say if either of you work and what your salaries are - or your ages - it''s difficult for people to help if they don''t know the facts.

We both took lump sums from our pension pot, and opted for a lower pension. Neither of us work now but as I said he has been offered a contract in china. He is 61 I am 59. He is hell bent on not giving me any of his pension, I have seen a solicitor who has told me that both pensions go into the pot and shared. We were married 29 years and lived together prior to that for 12 years. During that time I worked for four years part time and the rest full time until 3 years ago.
