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.

Hoping someone can help. I have been with my partner for just over 5 years, we have 2 children under 5 together. We bought a house together about 4 year ago and I paid a larger share of the deposit as well as the mortgage solely on my own for a greater proportion of our time together. The house is in joint names. He started growing marijuana at home and because of that we have separated. Our house is currently on the market but my partner refuses to give me the bigger share because I earn more. If I apply for a Tolata case, will it likely be in my favour? I have also applied for a live with order for my children and wonder how likely it is that it will be successful?

How is the house actually owned?

Does it show that you are tenants in common and that own different proportions?

Are you trying to live in that house with your children?
