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.

hello shocked

Yes if you dont want to continue (both of yuo) dont but if you leave it for a year and then continue the divorce the court may ask for a reason for the delay.

well just spoke to him and he has been in contact with his solicitor today about putting divorce on hold, will see how things pan out now, he is renting a flat soon but we will continue counselling sessions, we are no longer at each others throats either which is good, only a few weeks ago when i had originally mentioned about putting it on hold he was very defensive and saying whats the point i'm not coming back so maybe this is a small but positive sign, again not getting too excited tho
