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.

Discovered this site a few weeks ago and have been visiting it regularly since then. Decided to take the “big step” today and actually register.

I ended my relationship with my husband back in February after over 20 years of communal life, of which 12 years have been as husband and wife. Although I am the one who chose to end the marriage, and some people assuming that all is okay, it isn’t always easy....especially when, apart from my 18yrs old son, I have no family in this country and very few “real friends” – although I count myself extremely lucky to have them.

Anyway, about to embark on the “divorce journey” with all its ups and downs it will no doubt bring, and will be reading all your advice, “rants”, ”successes” with great care....and you never know...I might even post! :cheer:

Thanks for taking the time to read x
