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.

I found out that my husband is seeing someone else and for that reason, I want a divorce, but he blackmailing me that if I go further with the divorce he will take my child and everything that belongs to me. I am anxious that he may actually do these things or he may be physically violent towards me. Can I rely on domestic violence and apply for a non-molestation order?

Coercive and threatening behaviour are forms of domestic abuse. Are you saying he may make these threats or that he has made them?
