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 Readers,

Joined a few days ago and have been reading some helpful info on this site. I got divorced 5 years ago but have recently begun feeling that the deal I did was not in my favour esp where pension split was concerned. Ex was generous and I ended up with a 70/30 split on house, okay maintenance on 3 kids and a 40/60 pension split. However as kids now older and I see my future (old age!) stretching before me I am wondering if pension valuation and split was fair (having read some of the posts under the "pension" section). Does anyone have any experience of going back after the event and asking for a recalculation or is that impossible and too expensive. Would love to know if it has been done?

Also read sad article in Daily Mail this week about the ongoing effects of divorce on families down the line as kids grow and grandchildren come along and family occasions proliferate. Am watching my own mum''s health degenerate and am now worried about my own lonely future. Have not met anyone else (not that I have wanted to take ny further) and am anxious about my future. A bigger pension now seems more important than the size of my house.

Other than that am glad divorce is behind me. Reading posts on here make me grateful it is all in the past for me. There is life after divorce everyone!

Hi Sunshine,

Welcome to wiki

I noticed you haven''t had a reply, so here goes ...........

5 years ago was the financial agreement a private one or one done via a Consent Order?
