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 do have a block via Land registry on him selling the home. I am paying him ''rent'' as he says he''d be unable to afford the mortgsge otherwise! He''s running a pub and has a job with a bank plus his girlfriend lives with him...
I dont want to sell the house as my 18yr son still lives with me and his sister and I wouldnt be able to afford a 3 bedroom property to rent - there is no way I could afford a mortgage on my wages!!
He doesnt pay any maintenance but will buy our daughter things if she asks him to. I honestly do not know which way to turn for the best. There is a court date for next week which he told me about as I haven''t received a letter about it yet.:blink:

Normally you would receive a letter from the court saying date, time and a copy of the application. Phone the court tomorrow morning to a) find out if he is telling the truth, b)get a copy &c) find out what the application form is.

You will then be able to come back here and get advice on next move/prep needed.

Stay strong x
