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.

Hi all
am after some advice please.
been separated over 20 years.
spose didn't work for most of marriage
can they claim pensions accrued after I left?
have no idea where they are, only got their name and d.o.b so would find them hard to trace.
would rather just let sleeping dogs lie personally.

It would be very unlikely if pension was accrued after the marriage.

How long was the marriage? Were/are there any joint assets??

You can still divorce even if the other party cannot be traced.

You would only need a financial order if e. g. you need property transferred into your sole name.
