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 am writing a piece for YOU Magazine at The Mail on Sunday about people who represent themselves in the divorce court. I would love to hear about your experiences, good or bad. Interviews would be anonymous.

Not represnting myself but would love you to write a piece about how divorce is so wrong in this country and the injustice that happens.

Many people on here have had a realy bad time and some of the outcomes are very unfair.

The whole system needs to be looked at any any help from the media would help.

Regards

I have previously represented myself in Civil Court and Inner House, both actions concluded successfully in my favour. These actions were in Scotland and there are many differences in Scots Family Law with very little guidance. Both were immensely stressful at a time when I was immensely vulnerable in many ways....and both cases arose as a direct result of the conduct of a a solicitor...the latter point supported by a Sheriffs Judgement, A Lords Judgement and a Law Socirty Report.
