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.

need some advice on a window, my mum has a beautiful porthole window, but we noticed tonight the wood is rotting, as its a porthole means a new round window frame, so could work out rather expensive, so does anyone know of maybe a water proof protection for now ? or filler ? thanks xxxxx

Hi
I think Ronseal do a liquid that can sort it out. From memory you grub out most of the rotten wood, paint it on then use a wood filler to make good.

I have used wood hardener and filler in the past. So long as the glass is secure it should extend the life by a few years.

Basically the hardener soaks into the rotten wood fibres and bonds them to support the filler. You then just sand and gloss or varnish over the top.

Although that''s a quick fix, eventually it will probably need replacing and the longer you leave it the more expensive it will be. I suggest you get a few quotes - now is the ideal time to have it done, before the rain sets in again.

I repaired the bottom and side of a rotting sash window, and part of the wooden sill in 1989. I used wood hardener and filler on the window, and scarfed a new piece of wood onto the sill. It''s still going strong.....
