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.

Oh Jellytoes..I feel for you... well my s2bx has text me today and is trying to negotiate other terms to the sale of the house.It has got to the stage where I really don't care about the money anymore,just want it decided and settled and finished.I am past fighting with him for it.I will come off slightly better than him if the new deal goes ahead so that is ok, I figure I never was in it for the money and so am deciding to let my anger about it all just go over my head, no sense in letting it get to me... she is welcome to him, he will end up back in debt anyway, and I shall probally be ok, I am more financially tuned in than him, and as long as me and the kids are settled somewhere thats all I ask.
Yes my son came home at the weekend and said how SHE has been telling s2bx she loves him... it did hurt but then i thought to myself just let them get on with it, and she can find out just how he treats people he 'loves'! We are worth more than them and can now have self respect and know that we are worth so much more than they were prepared to give us.((((hugs))))we will get there I am sure of it.

I am further down the line than you.

9 months ago my husband left me for my friend ... he too told me he loved even lavishing me with gifts and cards on our wedding anniversry 3 days before he left!

You will never know why he did what he did and when he looks for a reason it will always be your fault.

I didn't want to divorce him - even found myself telling my solicitor I just wanted to start the ball rolling and see where it took me...

with hindsight he and she did me a favour.

1) I am thinner!!
2) I am no longer worrying that he is cheating or lying to me ... but do have trust issues with a lovely man I am now seeing...
3) My children respect me
4) I know who my real friends are
5) I am not afraid to ask for help
6) I can survive on my own and sometimes I can even soar above my own expectations...

How to remove him ... write a goodbye letter to him - don't send ti just write it and when the pain is less delete it... I did this and only deleted mine lst week. I looked at it and thought no I don't love you, I don't even like you and if I were to meet you knowing the type of man you are I wouldn't want to be at the same dinner party!

I am in counselling and I never saw myself doing that! Try it. A simple technique to move the pictures from your head ... take the picture and it will be vibrant technicolour... turn in black and white... make it smaller bit by bit til it moves over the horizon ... now replace it with a happy picture!

Give yourself time to grieve for your lost dreams, hopes and for the man you loved. He is dead the man there now is not for you - you deserve better. Betrayal and humiliation are the result of his act - he left you didn't.

It will get easier - you won't believe me it will. But there will be black and then grey days... not when you think either little reminders of what used to be. Prepare yourself and if you need to cry or give that primeval scream do.

Take care and pm if you need to - we are all here because we all know how it feels...

big hug x

Jelly4toes, you need advice from a solicitor about his means to take your daughter, maybe its a threat to scare you, why did the letter come to your house otherwise? I hope its just a scare anyway, good luck in your battle with him (((hugs)))

Taylr14 Your advice here is great, i'm going to follow it & see if it helps me at all. My stbx wont stop texting me & talking about our future, hes even asked me to go away with him at easter? I dont understand why he wants to do that when he's been with another woman a year....sigh hes really doing my head in at the minute.
