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.

Well worth a read. It''s not about divorce, but it offers useful perspectives which are very relevant and also put things in perspective.

It is said that the emotions a person goes through after being abandoned by a partner are the same as those of a bereavement. Having gone through both myself I can tell you they are not.

After marrying my childhood sweetheart I was widowed after 22 years of marriage & left to raise 2 children. It took me just over a year to get my life back on track.

Fast forward 24 years & after a second marriage I find myself single again, only this time my ex left me for someone else. It''s been nearly 2 years since he left but his lies & betrayal will haunt me for years to come. I won''t go into details about what I went through because we''ve all experienced pretty much the same.

My point is that when a partner dies they don''t choose to but when a partner leaves, they do. The feelings of rejection are the hardest to overcome.
