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''ll fill you guys in on the relevent details. I have two children with my ex, one is 10 and one who is registered disabled, who is 11. In August last year I was fortunate eneough to gain shared residence through court.
My problem is finances. I have my children live with me for 47% of the year. My ex lives in a 3 bed council house, gets both CB''s, all tax credits, high rate DLA and high rate mobility totalling £335 per week. Her part time wages are net £320 per week therefore a total of £655 per week. My income is net £230 per week, rent and council ta is £132 per week for a one bed flat, leaving me £98 a week to live off. Out of this money I have to pay all my utilities, fuel to transport them to school and buy food. I have asked her for financial help but she refuses to offer any money for me to support the children when they live with me. What are my options?

Bump just means someone has put your unanswered question back at the top of the list for those who may be able to answer it but missed it first time round.
