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 Everyone,

Please help me if you can. I am about to get divorced by my husband and I am on a spouse visa due to expire in Jan, 2013. We were supposed to apply for ILR in december, 2012 but now this divorce happening, I am sure he wont do it. I am from Pakistan and it would be very hard to go back as divorce is not acceptable culturally. I also have a daughter (born here in UK) who is 5 years old and I will be taking her with me if I go back. Please help me if you can. Any advice on how to stay here after divorce legally would be appreciated.

You really need to speak with immigration, the law is beyond the realms of wiki, spousal visas carry restrictions divorce and not living together are very common and need to be reported, the fact you have a child born here i think makes a big difference.

There is a guy on wiki that works for the UK border agency perhaps he will see this and advise if he can, bar him only the solicitors on wiki will be able to help, given they are family law solicitors i don`t know if they can.

Have you called the Pakistan embassy to see if they can help? worth a try.

Thanks Dukey. Pakistan embassy wont be any help. Do you know the name/id of the UKBA person on wikivtorce? And do you think if I tell UKBA that I have a child who was born here then they might let me stay here and and get the ILR? I cant go back. It would be a hell for me and my daughter. Do you know any solicitors who give free advice as I cannot pay anything?

I have asked a guy via pm to help, I can''t give any user names without permission of the user, he will help if he can though he is a decent guy.

I have very limited knowledge here, I do think you have a good chance of ILR given the child was born here, providing of course the child is living with you, I and another member will send you details of solicitors who will give you some free advice, you should have them in your pm box soon.
